91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion is composed of 40.8% Merlot, 51.6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7.6% Cabernet Franc, harvested September 10 to October 2. Deep garnet-purple colored, it rocks up with ready-for-business scents of baked blueberries, raspberry compote and warm blackcurrants with touches of fungi, yeast extract, menthol and espresso plus a fragrant waft of red roses. Full-bodied, the palate has wonderful freshness lifting the black and red fruit preserves, framed by beautifully rounded tannins and finishing on a savory note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Gorgeously finessed blueberries and blackberries are fresh and full of juice. Not for the first time tasting these 2018s, there's the feeling that this is a 2009 but with a little more freshness. Luxurious and silky, it's perhaps a little atypical but easy to love. 3.96pH.

89-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 La Chapelle de la Mission Haut-Brion has a lifted, quite floral bouquet with brambly red fruit, briary, pencil shaving and damp moss aromas. I find the wood nicely integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity with a subtle marine/black olive note that becomes more prominent towards the finish. Fine. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Mid cherry red. Really juicy and lithe, the tannins folded into the fruit. Lots of freshness and tannic finesse with a spicy firmness at the end. (JH) Inner quote mark (3/2019)
