Darker, more oak-influenced aromas on the nose, quite tangy freshness leading to a fairly astringent finish as the acidity kicks in. Rating: 87 L&S (Apr 2014)

The second wine of La Mission Haut-Brion, the 2013 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion was the result of a relatively severe selection. It is slightly rustic with high acids that give the wine a tart character. This is almost as much made of this wine as La Mission, because of the challenges of the harvest. Crisp, elegant pomegranate and red cherry notes, high acid and a narrowly constructed mouthfeel emerge from this pleasant, easygoing wine. Drink it over the next 5-8 years. 2014-2022 Rating: 85-86 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Aug 2014)

Merlot 52% Cabernet Franc 12.5% Cabernet Sauvignon 35.5% The fruit on the nose is sweet with a strong black fruit character. Cassis is very much to the fore on the palate with firmer black cherry underneath. Fresh fruits show at the back bramble and bilberry giving freshness and a lighter feel on the finish. 2018-28 Rating: 88-90 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk (May 2014)
