Château Haut-Brion

chateau haut-brio

Château Haut-Brion is the least well known of Bordeaux's first growths and is the only château outside of the Haut-Médoc to be awarded growth status in the Bordeaux classification of 1855. Haut-Brion rarely achieves a higher price than its contemporaries, and its intensely aromatic and concentrated wines are consistently viewed as some of the very best in the entire Bordeaux region.

Haut-Brion is the benchmark estate of the Péssac-Leognan (Graves' premiere sub-appellation), and is also a rarity amongst many Bordeaux growths in that it produces excellent red (Haut-Brion) and white (Haut-Brion Blanc) wine from 51 hectares hemmed in by the bustling, commercial suburb of Pessac.

Haut-Brion's red has a savoury richness and complexity on the palate that sets it above other Péssac reds, with greater intensity and depth of flavour than its neighbours. White Haut-Brion Blanc is right at the top of the white wine Bordeaux ladder every year.

    Optimum Drinking: 2020-2065
    Reviewer Rating: 100 - Robert Parker

    "...it is extraordinary...ethereal...full-bodied, but that’s only apparent in the aftertaste, as the wine seems to float across the palate with remarkable sweetness, harmony, and the integration of all its component parts – alcohol, tannin, acidity, wood, etc. This prodigious Haut-Brion is hard to compare to another vintage, at least right now, but it should have 50 to 75 years of aging potential."

    Reviewer Rating: 100 - Robert Parker

    “A modern-day version of the epic 1959, the 1989 Haut-Brion is all about harmony. Fine, silky tannins and expressive aromatics are two of the signatures. Tobacco, cedar and anise add layers of nuance to the dark, mineral-inflected fruit.” Antonio Galloni
