Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, March 2015
(WE92-94 points) This richly structured, full wine is soft and rounded, with black currant and intense acidity as the background. The tannins feel deceptively firm because of the fruit.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2015
(WS90-93 points) Vibrant blueberry and pastille notes form the core, with good energy from the savory and tobacco accents. Has a lightly chewy edge through the finish, giving this a grippy feel. Tasted non-blind.—J.M.

Currant and flower aromas galore. Very aromatic. Full-bodied yet tight and dense on the palate. A solid core of fruit and savory acidity. Very long and pretty. Drink in 2021.

Smoke, tobacco, licorice, cedar, French oak and dark stone fruit notes struggle to fully emerge. Today the tannins are especially forbidding. There is good energy and tension in the glass. Perhaps it is the high %age of Cabernet Franc that is shutting the wine down. The 2014 is very pretty, but it is not an especially forthcoming second wine. Even so, the bright floral and red-fruit-toned notes make me think it will drink nicely for a number of years. The blend is 45 % Merlot, 31 % Cabernet Franc and 24 % Cabernet Sauvignon.

(WA88-90 points) The La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion 2014 is a blend of 45% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a tightly wound bouquet at first with blackcurrant and hints of orange blossom lending a prettiness. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, a nice underbelly of classicism (emanating partly from the 8% vin de presse) underneath a veneer of ripe black fruit, easing down to a supple, “fruity” finish. Fine, though there is a chasm between deuxième and Grand Vins this year. - Neal Martin
