Description

The refinement and balance of a Pessac-Léognan Grand Cru Classé

The estate

A neighbour of the illustrious Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion has been an iconic Bordeaux wine for centuries. Founded in the 16th century by the de Lestonnac family, the estate was subsequently administered by Lazarist priests. Now owned by Clarence Dillon and Prince Robert de Luxembourg, Château La Mission Haut-Brion continues to shine among the world's greatest wines.

The vineyard

Located in the communes of Talence and Pessac, Château La Mission Haut-Brion looks after a vineyard planted on fine gravel soils resting on a subsoil of clay, sand, limestone and falun (a shell limestone). The vines of Château de La Mission Haut-Brion produce great Pessac-Léognan wines.

The vintage

The winter began with high levels of rainfall, ideal for replenishing water reserves, and was from February onwards mild temperatures which advanced early budburst. The frost in April had a minimal impact on the vineyards, before a mild May. Flowering was uniform and of good quality. The vines withstood three waves of summer heat, supported by the expertise of the teams and the adaptation of viticultural practices. The rain on 13 August restored the vineyard. Despite their small size, the grapes were of excellent quality.
