Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

The Clarence Dillon range is splendid this year, especially the Chapelle de La Mission, which is one of the best examples we can recall. Very classical and correct, this 55.9% Merlot, 35.4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8.7% Cabernet Franc blend opens with notes of violets, cedar, tobacco, blossom, dark cherries and pure hedgerow fruits. Tight grained and compact on the palate with excellent energy, bright acidity and a fine network of tannins laced with cassis, graphite and crushed stones.

Notes
The 2022 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion, aged in 40% new oak, has a fragrant bouquet with red cherries and crushed strawberry, well-defined and elegant. The palate is medium-bodied with tarry black fruit, slightly powdery in texture with a pert, saline finish. Very composed with a touch of dark chocolate on the aftertaste. It should give 12 to 15 years of drinking pleasure.

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.
