La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion is the second wine of Château La Mission Haut-Brion. This name reflects the rich history and tradition of the Château. The Lazarist Fathers, also called the Priests of the Mission, inherited the domain of La Mission and took possession of it in 1664. They built a chapel, consecrated on August 16, 1698 by the dean of the chapter of Saint-André. The priests named the chapel Notre-Dame de Haut-Brion. The exceptional quality of the wine produced by the good friars contributed to the growth of the congregation. The brothers thanked God for His blessings by engraving years of the best vintages on the beams of the chapel. The years 1784, 1811, 1848, 1874, 1899, 1900 appeared on the ceiling of the chapel.

This is the best Haut-Brion since 1959 and perhaps one of the best Bordeaux we have ever tasted. It has loads of character, packed to the brim with fruit and tannins. A wine for the next century. Enjoyable now, but much better after 1998.

Seductive Haut-Brion. Complex, with cinnamon, vanilla, cherry, berry and dried fruits on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a polished, caressing texture. Best after 2003.

In contrast to the 1993's penetrating, upfront aromas, the 1994 is closed aromatically. With coaxing, some truffle-like, sweet, black friut aromas, as well as those of mineral/stones come forward. This spicy, full-bodied, powerful wine is a more masculine, structured effort than the 1993, with a potentially more complex, richer character. It is superbly crafted, beautifully balanced, and as pure as a wine can be. The integration of new oak, acidity, and tannin is commendable. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.

Dark ruby-garnet color. Dried berry character, with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. Rather reserved style of Haut-Brion. Best after 2005.

For an Haut-Brion, this is huge. Every characteristic suggests power, from the dark color, through the knock-out perfumes, full of dark, brooding fruits. the flavors are black, intense and ripe. It is a delicious wine, surprisingly ready to drink. And yes, just at the end, there is a small hint of the delicacy and elegance that is true Haut-Brion.

An Haut-Brion with lots of finesse. Beautiful tobacco, berry, cedar and plum aromas in this one. Full-bodied, yet very fine and reserved, with silky tannins and a medium finish. I still prefer the 1998 HB, but this is very, very fine indeed. Best after 2010.

The 2000 Haut-Brion possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as a striking perfume of wet steel, hot rocks, minerals, plums, black currants, and cherries. Elegant yet deep, delicate yet authoritatively flavorful, this subtle, highly nuanced yet stunningly rich offering is a great Haut-Brion. The wine (a blend of 51% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Cabernet Franc) is a sensational Haut-Brion that should be uncommonly long-lived, even by the standards of this noble chateau. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2040.
