jamessuckling.com, April 2019
(93-94 points) A solid second wine from La Mission with currants, blackberries and hints of fresh tobacco. Oyster shell as well. Full-bodied with firm and chewy yet fine-grained tannins. Driven and long.

On the palate, the wine is rich, fresh, and loaded with tobacco leaf and sweet, dark red fruits and spice. One of the best vintages for La Chapelle de La Mission Haut Brion. It is difficult to believe that this is a second wine! The blend is 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36.5% Merlot and 21.5% Cabernet Franc.

Deep garnet-purple colored, it rocks up with ready-for-business scents of baked blueberries, raspberry compote and warm blackcurrants with touches of fungi, yeast extract, menthol and espresso plus a fragrant waft of red roses. Full-bodied, the palate has wonderful freshness lifting the black and red fruit preserves, framed by beautifully rounded tannins and finishing on a savory note.- LPB

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2034. — J.M.

Gorgeously finessed blueberries and blackberries are fresh and full of juice. Not for the first time tasting these 2018s, there's the feeling that this is a 2009 but with a little more freshness.

Not for the first time tasting these 2018s, there's the feeling that this is a 2009 but with a little more freshness. Luxurious and silky, it's perhaps a little atypical but easy to love. 3.96pH.
