One of La Mission Haut-Brion’s best crops. It is a wine with a recognizable and a captivating character. At first the aroma is rather closed, but then it reveals its nice complexity. It is an exceptionally easy wine to drink with a slight sweetness at the end.

Château La Mission Haut Brion

Château La Mission Haut Brion

La Mission-Haut-Brion is the best wine of the Graves region, then of Haut-Brion, but in some vintages, it definitely outperforms it. The two properties are in close proximity (shared once) and have been owned by Domaine Clarence Dillon SA since 1983. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon 46%, Merlot 44% and Cabernet Franc 10%, on a deep layer of gravel mixed with clay. Interestingly, the blending takes place before aging in barrels. Here they believe that blending wines is important before the influence of the tree is felt. La Mission Haut Brion makes a thick and rich wine with aromas of tobacco, soil, spices, which takes time to reveal its charm.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.
