CHÂTEAU HAUT BRION

Bought by Jean de Pontac in 1533 and passing through 4 different families before its purchase in 1935 by the American financier Clarence Dillon, Haut Brion has had one of the most colourful and celebrated histories of any château.

Prince Robert of Luxembourg and his mother the Duchesse de Mouchy, president of Domaine Clarence Dillon, must be proud that 75 years later the family is still very much involved. 3rd generation Jean Philippe Delmas is in charge of the wine making, ably assisted in continuing the excellence of Haut Brion by Jean-Philippe Masclef as maître de chai, and Pascal Baratié...

TASTING NOTES

An harmonious blend of 93% Merlot with 7% Cabernet Franc, this is a very attractive, medium to full bodied wine with ripe plum aromas mingled with sweet wild herbs and hint of lavender. Refreshing red plum flavours, with darker forest fruit notes developing as the wine evolves, are balanced by a lively freshness and a fine mineral quality which runs...

TASTING NOTES

Attractive ripe peach, apricot and honey on the nose with elegant, sweet, stone fruit flavours mingled with sweet ripe apples and spices. Quite subtle but plenty of length with a persistent acidity which gives freshness.

the vineyard manager.

Haut Brion and its sister property, La Mission Haut Brion which was acquired by the Dillon family in 1983 and is situated opposite the main estate, are almost entirely surrounded by the suburbs of Bordeaux. The vineyards are only 5km southwest of the centre of the city and it is a credit to the property that it has managed to continue unaffected by the encroaching urban sprawl.

In recent years some of the wines have been renamed, with Bahans Haut Brion becoming Le Clarence de Haut Brion in recognition of Clarence Dillon and his family; the white La Clarté de Haut Brion was formerly Les Plantiers and Laville Haut Brion has reverted back to its original name La Mission Haut Brion Blanc.
