Haut Brion, Pessac-Leognan
In Stock (11 Available) SEE MORE SIZES

Representative blend: 45% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. The second wine is Clarence de Haut Brion (previously Bahans Haut Brion).

Haut Brion is sited across the road from its sister property, La Mission Haut Brion. Both are within the southern suburbs of the city of Bordeaux, and surrounded by development on all sides. It is in part this very specific (and quite warm) microclimate which gives Haut Brion its unique taste - Havana tobacco, earth and spice. It can also be the most velvety and seductive of all the first growths, and to some extent remains underappreciated for its myriad subtleties and beauties.

Haut Brion has been owned by the American Clarence Dillon family since the 1930s.

Haut Brion, Pessac-Leognan
In Stock (17 Available)

Serena Sutcliffe, MW: Innate breed, intense perfume and absolute First Growth impact on the nose. Terrifically luscious in the mouth and so full of black fruit depth. A simply marvellous wine, silky and magnificent. Hedonistic heaven. Another bottle was all spice box, liquorice and cigars - tremendous. Then, at 18 years old, in Cambridge for the 350th anniversary of Pepys mentioning Haut Brion in his diary, still young and vibrant, with an incredibly spicy, peaty nose. Roses, smoke and sandalwood. Smouldering richness and concentration. This could go for 50 years. 05/13

Jamie Ritchie: Drinking superbly right now. Savory, spicy and supple. Tobacco. Great richness and length, balanced by lovely acidity. Very good. 01/14

Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac
Bordeaux: Pauillac: 1ST GROWTH
In Stock (6 Available) SEE MORE SIZES

Representative blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Average production: 17,000 cases of Grand Vin and the same of Carruades de Lafite

Classified as the `first of the Firsts` in the 1855 Classification, Lafite may be the most celebrated Cabernet Sauvignon based wine in the world. Situated on a wonderful gravel `croupe` at the northern extremity of Pauillac on the border with St. Estèphe, the perfect gravel terroir yields wines of unique perfume and personality vintage by vintage. While lighter in body than Latour, situated at the other end of the Pauillac appellation, Lafite has an equally remarkable ability to age gracefully for decades.

Latour, Pauillac
Bordeaux: Pauillac: 1ST GROWTH
In Stock (5 Available)

Representative blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot. Annual production: 16,000 cases of Grand Vin and 8,000 cases of Forts de Latour. The third wine is simply called Pauillac de Latour.

At the very southern end of Pauillac stands the unmistakable medieval tower of Latour, which marks the heart of the vineyards, sloping gently down to the Gironde river beyond. This proximity to the river both wards off spring frosts and cools the vineyards during particularly warm summers. The result is that Latour produces extremely consistent wines, however tricky the vintage. Above all, this is a wine of power: enormous tannic structure and great density of fruit make this one of the most long lived of all Bordeaux (rivalled only perhaps by its neighbour LĂ©oville Las Cases).

In recent times Latour has made waves by withdrawing from the annual Futures campaign; its wines are now only offered when the estate considers them ready for drinking.

Latour is owned by French businessman Francois Pinault.

Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac
Bordeaux: Pauillac: 1ST GROWTH
In Stock (6 Available) SEE MORE SIZES

Label artist: Miguel Barcelo

Representative blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc

Annual production: 17,000 cases and 3,000 cases of the second wine, Petit Mouton. There is also a small amount of white produced: Aile d`Argent.

The only wine ever to have moved up the 1855 classification - from second to first growth in 1973 - `Mouton`, as it is universally known, is a profoundly unique wine in Bordeaux. While the vineyards lie adjacent to those of Lafite, the wine could scarcely be more different. Mouton has a unique nose of spice, cedarwood and cassis and always has greater weight than Lafite. Since the Second World War, Mouton`s singularity has only been enhanced by its artists labels - a different artist for each vintage. This makes it a particular favourite of collectors.
