Estate Notes

Château Haut-Brion's intensely aromatic, rich and concentrated wines are often viewed as some of the very best in the entire Bordeaux region, including its fellow first growths of the Médoc.

Haut-Brion is the least well-known of Bordeaux's first growths (and is the only château outside of the Médoc to be awarded growth status in the 1855 classification), and so it rarely achieves a higher price than its contemporaries, which is good news for astute buyers. But the real key to Haut-Brion's steadfast position amongst Bordeaux's elite has been the long, stable tenure of winemakers, particularly the legendary Jean-Bernard Delmas.
