Tasting Notes and Scores

94 DR

Confident tannic frame that holds the damson and charred black cherry and pomegranate fruit in place, along with spiced turmeric and smoked earth. Things widen out through the mid palate, and the texture becomes appealingly velvety. Full of joy. Harvest September 7th to 29. Drink 2026 - 2040
Jane Anson December 2022 - Inside Bordeaux

Decanter

93-94 JS

Blackberries, some crushed stones and iodine with a sandalwood undertone. It’s full and racy with firm tannins.

Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A blend of 44.7% Merlot and 55.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2020 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion has an alcohol of 14.3%. It rolls effortlessly out of the glass with seducing notes of warm black plums, black cherry compote and blackberry pie, plus suggestions of lavender, crushed rocks and underbrush with a hint of sassafras. The medium-bodied palate is delicately played and refreshing, offering lots of soft-spoken black fruit and earthy layers with a soft texture and seamless acidity, finishing with a spicy kick.

Wine Advocate

Black cherries, currants, tobacco, and leafy herb notes all emerge from the 2020 La Chapelle De La Mission Haut-Brion. and it's medium to full-bodied, with a round, layered mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and just a big, rich, yet concentrated vibe that's very much in the style of the vintage. It's going to have two decades of longevity.

The 2020 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion is rich, dense and so inviting, right from the very first taste. Ripe red purplish/berry fruit, rose petal, spice and gravel all meld together in the glass, but what impresses most about La Chappelle is its exceptional balance. Aromatics, fruit and structure are all so well-balanced. The 2020 is an especially fine La Chappelle.

(55% CS, 45% M; 14.3% ABV)
Exuberantly, freshly sweet ripe cassis fruit; nicely balanced, full, fresh, very fine in moderate tannin (clearly very careful extraction); fresh, restrained, elegant wine, a touch wood-dry (alcohol-hardened?) in texture, but with a very nice length of flavor and typical overall “house” restraint, plus a long, warm, sweet-cored aftertaste. Excellent Chapelle in this slightly hotter / harder style. 2030–40+.

The 2020 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion offers plenty of ripe brambly red fruit on the nose: cranberry and wild strawberry, hints of blue fruit in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, rounded tannins that lend a very smooth texture and approachability. Red fruit merge into blacker fruit towards the second half that displays fine sapidity and quite a persistent finish. There is something sedate about this La Chapelle, comfortable in its own skin.

Full embossed bottle 1,280 g. Cask sample taken 13 April … nice and fresh! 55.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44.7% Merlot picked 7 to 29 September. Estimated alcohol 14.3%.
Dark purplish crimson. Subtle, saline nose. Really gets the saliva flowing. The tannins are not the supplest – slightly sandy-textured – but the fruit is very dense and correct with real life to it. Medium weight with great balance. Racy wine with good drive – though you'll have to wait awhile for the tannins to recede.
