ABOUT THE WINE

The only property from outside the Médoc to be included in the 1855 Classification, Haut-Brion’s viticultural history can be traced back further than its Médoc First Growth counterparts.  Samuel Pepys even mentions it in his diaries.  Situated in what is now Pessac-Léognan, the property finds itself now in the suburbs of the ever-encroaching city of Bordeaux.  After falling into a state of disrepair the estate was purchased in 1935 by Clarence Dillon, an American financier, since when it has enjoyed a steady and continual resurgence to a position of pre-eminence.  Dillon’s great-grandson, Prince Robert of Luxembourg, now runs the estate.

TASTING NOTES
Sweet sour nose of powerful red fruits at first, leaning towards plums. After a while the nose is all prunes. Very rich, with stewed fruits on the palate. Hedonistic pleasure.

FOOD PAIRING
Goose, duck, hare, rabbit or venison are great accompaniments, herb-crusted roast aubergine and lamb work well too.


FRIARWOOD SAYS
A spectacular wine that ranks as one of the greatest expressions of this estate.
