Producer Tasting Notes

Dark, intense red colour. The initial impression on the nose is deep, spicy and incredibly complex, underscored by ripe black fruit aromas. Starts out soft and well-structured on the palate, becoming full-bodied with impressive volume and smooth tannin. T


Vineyard Notes

Château Haut-Brion’s vineyard is located in the commune of Pessac, just a few miles southwest of Bordeaux’s city center. It belongs to the Pessac-Léognan appellation, to the north of the Graves wine-growing region. Château Haut-Brion is the only wine to be both First Growth from the 1855 classification and Classified Growth of the Graves.


Winemaking

The grape bunches harvested and the berries placed in vats, the temperature rises …. Now it is time for fermentation to begin. Thanks to technology and precise temperature control, the winemaker knows how to regulate these fermentations. Two weeks later, when the colour, tannins and aromatic components have given their full potential, it is time to run off the wine from the vats.


Ageing

The best wines are selected for Château Haut-Brion and placed in barrels for 18 to 20 months.
