Information About Chateau Haut Brion

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.

Tasting Date : 01 June 2010

The 2000 Bahans Haut-Brion is fully mature, but I had indicated that back in 2003, giving it an anticipated maturity date of 2005-2016. Its smoky, soft berry fruit and notes of fresh porcini mushrooms intermixed with cigar tobacco and black currants are complex. This complexity is followed by a fleshy, elegant, silky wine to drink over the next 5-6 years.

Haut-Brion can be among the trickiest Bordeaux to taste young, often needing a full decade before the extraordinary complexity that marks this terroir begins to emerge. I was thrilled to see how well both the second wine, Bahans Haut-Brion, and Haut-Brion performed in this tasting, and both scores are slight upgrades.
