Tasting Notes

A beautiful, soft, richly fruity wine with silky tannins, loads of blue fruits, and hints of smoky barbecue and graphite, the 2000 La Chapelle de La Mission is fleshy, evolved, and complex, a top-notch success that gets a slight upgrade from my original review. Drink it over the next 5-10 years.

Readers looking for an excellent value should seek out the limited production of La Mission's second wine, La Chapelle de la Mission. The top-notch 2000 offers a sweet, jammy nose of caramel, blackberries, cassis, and smoke. High levels of glycerin coat the mouth like melting marrow. Sweet, deep, full-bodied, and hedonistic, revealing much of La Mission's style, it is best consumed during its first 10-12 years of life.
