Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Until Domaine Clarence Dillon, the owner of Château Haut-Brion, bought its neighbour, La Mission-Haut-Brion in 1984, it had been its greatest, albeit underperforming, rival.

Since the purchase however, and under the legendary Jean-Philippe Delmas, who has been a hugely successful winemaker at Haut-Brion, La Mission has gone on to produce equally sought after wines. It is now the second wine in the Graves’ premier Pessac-Léognan sub-appellation, but in some vintages produces even finer wines than Haut-Brion itself.

La Mission, which is perched on a large gravel bank, specialises in producing good wines even in poor vintages, and is famed for its quintessential Graves style: rich, earthy and full-bodied.
