K&L Notes

Château Haut-Brion is one of the five first growth wines of Bordeaux, and the only one from Graves. Located on two hillocks of gravel over clay and sand in Pessac--a classic Graves terroir. It consists of 51 hectares of mostly red varietals (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot). It is the oldest wine estate in Bordeaux and its wine was even served to Charles II! The estate is now owned and lovingly managed by the Dillon family--the royal family of Luxembourg. 95 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. This has a very elegant bouquet with blackberry, briary, potter’s kiln and bacon fat with fine delineation and lift. The palate is medium-bodied with great freshness on the entry, very good acidity with red-berried fruit interlaced with cedar, graphite and leather. Very good depth, very feminine and focused with ample freshness on the finish that seems to have “filled out” in recent years. Excellent. Tasted March 2011."
