The 2010 La Chapelle de la Mission, which includes the production from the now-extinct La Tour Haut-Brion vineyard, is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, which is a high percentage for the latter grape. Fleshy, succulent and opulent along the lines of the 2009 (which did surprise me ), it is a big wine, with boatloads of glycerin and a classic Graves character of scorched earth, burning embers, charcoal, and plenty of black cherry and black currant fruit. The glycerin level is high, the fruit level impressive, and the purity and texture endearing. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

A bright purple colour, this has a rounded, opulent bouquet with great purity, the 27% Merlot ebullient and luscious. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, very elegant and refined with an almost understated and yet precise, minerally finish. Very caressing and refined. Tasted March 2011.

The second wine of La Mission shows a lot of restraint this year. Blueberry and lemon rind aromas and flavors. It’s full and silky with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Tangy acidity and bright fruit in the end. James Suckling jamessuckling.com

Offers a very sleek, seamless feel, with a rush of violet and pastis notes and a dense, sappy, plum-filled finish. Not as overtly bright as many other 2010s, but you know the freshness is there since this is big yet light on its feet. Tasted non-blind. —J.M. James Molseworth, winespectator.com

17% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Cabernet Franc. Dark lustrous crimson. Ripe sumptuous, top-quality nose. Very sumptuous and almost forward. Only on the end is one aware of the tannin and acidity. Very polished tannins until a slight stringiness on the finish betrays that this is not the grand vin. Chewy finish. But the fruit just goes on and on. Really pretty special stuff, apparently plumped out a bit. Will we see a third wine then?! 14.8% jancisrobinson.com

La Chapelle de La Mission Haut Brion produced from 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc is filled with smoke, tar, blackberry and tobacco scents. Full bodied, with layers of chocolate covered blackberries that end with a blast of fresh, juicy cassis. 91-93 Pts Jeff Leve winecellarinsider.com

The deep ruby purple 2010 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion, La Mission?s 2nd wine, offers up notes of vibrant blackberries, cherries, plums and cedar, followed by a wonderful array of very precise and focused flavours and a long finish. There is a wonderful freshness to the fruit, and an amazing density and power for a second wine, suggesting it will have the aging potential of many of the grands vins.
