    Cuvée presentation

    La Tour Haut Brion is a classic, elegant, thoroughbred Pessac. Its bouquet develops aromas of cigar boxes, undergrowth and blackberry jam. Beautifully direct, well-balanced and delicate in the mouth. A truly great wine, now incorporated into La Mission Haut-Brion.

    Information about domainChâteau La Tour Haut-Brion

    Bought out by the owners of Châteaux Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion, La Tour Haut-Brion was the smallest of the red Graves crus classés in terms of vineyard area. Production ended with the 2005 vintage; the vineyards were then devoted to the production of Château La Mission Haut-Brion. La Tour Haut-Brion was one of Pessac-Léognan's most sought-after reds. Never the most demonstrative of wines, it has always produced elegant, thoroughbred wines which age gracefully.
