Château Haut-Brion is a superb wine among the First Growths. It was the only wine not from Médoc, but instead from Graves area when Originlly listed among the Premier Grand Cru Classé in 1855. It was also on the inaugural list of Grand Cru Classé de Graves in 1959.  In 1987, when Pessac-Léognan was carved out of Graves as an independent AOC, Haut-Brion became a member of Pessac-Léognan.  However, people continue to interchangeably identify Haut-Brion as both Graves and Pessac-Léognan.

Tasting Notes

"The 2017 Haut-Brion is rich and virile, even in a vintage where it has less power than is the norm. My impression is that the 2017 is going to lie dormant for many years before it awakens, but its pedigree is quite obvious. Black cherry, plum, gravel, smoke, licorice and dark spice all burst out of the glass. The 2017 is a powerful, vertical Haut-Brion endowed with a real feeling of gravitas and somber intensity. The long, substantial finish suggests readers can look forward to many years of fine drinking." - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, (March, 2020), Rating: 96+, Drink: 2027-2057

"Composed of 53% Merlot, 40.7% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6.3% Cabernet Franc, the very deep purple-black colored 2017 Haut-Brion is a little closed on the nose, revealing fresh blackberries, black currants and dark chocolate with suggestions of pencil shavings, beef drippings, tilled soil and cracked black pepper plus a waft of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, it has very firm, ripe, grainy tannins and a lively backbone structuring the tightly knit earth and black fruit layers, finishing with compelling mineral and perfumed layers." - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2018, Issue 236), Rating: 95-97
