La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion (0.75 L)
The 2015 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sasuvignon, 30% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. The palate is a little tight, just as I found it out of barrel, although it opens with aromas of blackberry, raspberry, desiccated orange peel and hints of dried herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, a little more structured compared to previous vintages but very fresh with subtle marine notes, seaweed and a little iodine furnishing the appealing finish. This is a great La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion and it will age longer than I suspect many will allow it.
