Notes
The 2019 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion has a crisp and fresh nose with blackberry, black olive and a light marine scent coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, and well-judged acidity. Quite harmonious with the oak neatly subsumed on the finish. Delightful. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Haut Brion’s sister property has a habit of trumping its more illustrious sibling. Owned by Domaine Clarence Dillon S.A., La Mission’s vineyards lie in the same suburbs as those of Haut Brion on deep gravel croupes interspersed with clay. The cepage is not dissimilar in the red wine (48% Cabernet, 45% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc) although the Haut Brion Blanc (formally Laville Haut Brion) has a lot more Semillon in the blend than Haut Brion Blanc.

Stylistically, La Mission Haut Brion rouges is more accessible and open than the deeply mineral and slightly introverted Haut Brion when young, but given time the Haut Brion will begin to show its power. Both wines reward long term aging to be at their best.
