La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion Pessac Leognan 2012
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
|Brand||La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion|
Pure and precise aromas of dark fruits and currants with hints of stones follow through to a full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Harmonious and very elegant. Better in 2017.
Named after the chapel that brings out the monastic feel of Château la Mission Haut-Brion, this second wine is firm and tannic, with a dusty texture and a dry, firm aftertaste. It's nowhere near ready to drink although with its weight and the potential of the underlying black currant fruits, it's likely to be richly dense in the years to come. Drink from 2018.
