General information

The only Château outside the Médoc included in the classification of red wines of 1855. The first written mention of this vineyard dates from 1423. But its development really began when Jean de Pontac married, in 1525, Jeanne de Belloy, who Bring a part of Haut Brion as a dowry. In 1550 he ordered the construction of the building, which initially consisted of 4 towers and a chapel. But one of the towers and the chapel were destroyed years later. He was married three times, had a son at 76 and died at 101.

Armand de Pontac, one of his successors, puts into practice new forms of winemaking such as barrel filling or racking, in order to make his wines improve over the years. Another of his heirs was Franqois-Delphin d'Auléde, first a baron and later Marquis de Margaux, who was also the owner of Château Margaux.

Tasting Notes Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2000

The ink purple color is accompanied by flamboyant sweet aromas of blackberries, blueberries, toast, scorched earth, coffee, asphalt, graphite, and smoking. Super intense and creamy texture with a sumptuous mid-palate and the finish is a rich explosion, layers of stress has everything I could ever wish for from a terroir that has given me so much hedonistic and intellectual pleasure any other.
