Château Haut-Brion. It’s a legend.
Situated on the Left Bank of Bordeaux in the Pessac Léognan commune, which is in the
Graves district, the iconic Château Haut-Brion estate is known to produce one of the most historic and legendary wines in the world… the Haut-Brion. It’s a Bordeaux from the Left Bank.
And of the five first growths or Premières Grand Crus Classés, (which in themselves are exclusive enough,) the Haut Brion is the only wine with the Pessac-Léognan appellation. It is the stuff of legends praised by British King Charles II, Thomas Jefferson among many others.
Unlike most of the Left Bank appellations which are famous for its reds, the Haut Brion is known for producing very high-quality whites as well. For the reds, it’s a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon along with its famous blending partner Merlot, in addition to some Cabernet Franc. The whites are a blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc.
A wine that has graced royal tables for hundreds of years, the Haut Brion is as classy & elegant as it gets.
