This wine is a deep, purplish-red in the glass, with brilliant highlights. Initially slightly reserved on the nose, it developed fascinating complexity on aeration. Fresh red-berry fruit was accented by hints of spicier aromas, such as cocoa. The initial impression was very soft and soothing on the palate, but the tannic structure gradually affirmed its presence, combining firmness with great finesse. This wine confirmed our assessment from recent vintages that Le Clarence de Haut-Brion can certainly be considered a great wine.
When he purchased Château Haut-Brion in 1935, Clarence Dillon restored it to its former glory and to the elite circle of the most legendary wines in the world. This extraordinary, bold, courageous vision is now continued by the fourth generation of the family, represented by Prince Robert of Luxembourg, Chairman since 2008.
Located in the town of Pessac, just a few kilometres from Bordeaux, Château Haut-Brion – the first of the three estates acquired by the Dillon family – is the oldest winegrowing property in the region.
