Its amazing to visit this vineyard located as it is in a surprisingly urban location inside the south west city perimeter. The oldest of the first growths, the vineyard is made up of roughly equal percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with about ten percent Cabernet Franc, oh and one percent Petit Verdot. The wines are often restrained and aristocratic in their youth opening up to reveal incredible complexity with beautifully spicy tabacco and cedar aromas. Truly outstanding.
Haut Brion is the only first growth Bordeaux estate in the Graves region, it is also the oldest of these first growths. Wines from this estate have been famously enjoyed by King Charles II of England, and the diarist Samuel Pepys who wrote "Drank a sort of French wine called Ho Bryen that hath a good and most particular taste I never met with". Thomas Jefferson, whom would later become President of the United States of America, also listed Haut Brion as among the four finest estates in Bordeaux.
Chateau Haut Brion carries 48.35 hectares of vineyards planted to 45.4% Merlot, 43.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.7% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.
