Chateau Haut-Brion – Pessac-Leognan 1999

55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc


Located on the outskirts of Pessac, not far from the center of Bordeaux, Château Haut-Brion traces its origins back to ancient times, producing wine since 1525 when it was constructed by Jean de Pontac, specifically for viticulture. As the first “cru” in the history of Bordeaux wines, Château Haut-Brion unfortunately experienced fragmentation at the end of the 17th century. Fortunately, it was reassembled in 1836 thanks to the Parisian banker J.E. Larrieu. However, the modern story begins with the arrival of Clarence Dillon. The legend tells of the American financier, who, in 1935, forced by bad weather to make an unexpected stop at Haut-Brion, decided to purchase the Château to reside permanently. The factual account reflects a property in serious financial difficulty, acquired by the Dillon family, which invested substantial capital in renovating vineyards and cellars. Ultimately, Château Haut-Brion today stands as one of the most spectacular estates in the Graves district. It produces rich, distinctive, and concentrated wines of high quality, distinct from the wines of the Médoc which are more robust, full-bodied, and marked by wood, yet capable of aging in the bottle for thirty years or more.
