Bordeaux 2016: Chateau Haut Brion
31 May 2017

We are delighted to be able to offer small quantities of two of the most exceptional wines from 2016: Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion. These sister chateaux share the same exquisite terroir in the gravelly suburbs of Pessac, and the same winemaker par excellence, Jean-Philippe Delmas. However, the wines are quite unique, possessing strong individual personalities.

It is not really possible to pick a favourite, both are quite exceptional, albeit in completely contrasting styles. The Mission is opulent, charismatic, a bit of a peacock, charming all that taste it with its beautifully pure fruit and pure cashmere tannins – one can’t help but be seduced. The Haut Brion is strikingly different, it is reserved, brooding, highbrow, and requires a degree of supposition. It’s all evidently there, a dark complex core, intricate minerality that speaks of the outstanding, stony terroir, framed with sophisticated and profound tannins. It is a wine of epic proportions, and at this early stage undoubtedly the more backward of the two. We expect the tables to turn at some stage in the future as is so often the case with these two monumental wines.
