The Château Haut-Brion is characterized by a ruby ​​red color. The nose opens with elegant hints of raspberry, cherry, blacks fruits and plum jam, which give way to hints of herbs and graphite. The palate is rich and austere, pleasant intensity, complexity and persistence.

Wine for special occasions, the Château Haut-Brion is perfect to accompany red meats, pasta dishes, noble poultry and seasoned cheeses.

Château Haut-Brion has one of the longest and most interesting histories of any Bordeaux wine château. The property derives its name from an ancient Celtic term "Briga." Loosely translated, this means a rise or mount in the land. This unique terroir was first prized for growing grapes to produce Bordeaux wine close to 600 years ago. The vines were planted to produce wine for a local chapel that was founded in Bordeaux by the Menuts Monks to remember the recently deceased Monk, Johan d'Artiguemale. However, the earliest known documents proving wine from the future vineyards of Haut-Brion on a yearly basis date back to 1521, when the estate was known as Aubrion. This makes Château Haut-Brion the oldest, continuously working winery and luxury brand in Bordeaux.
