    Price Realised  


    Château Haut-Brion has been highly regarded for many centuries, being mentioned in Samuel Pepy’s diary in 1663. In 1935 Haut-Brion was bought by the American banker, Clarence Dillon. His grand-daughter, Joan Dillon, is the President and her son, His Royal Highness Prince Robert of Luxembourg, the Vice President and Managing Director. In 1983 the Dillons acquired the next door property La Mission Haut-Brion. Haut-Brion is renowned for the classic Graves earthy and smoky character, combined with the opulent and approachable nature provided by the higher proportion of Merlot in comparison to the other Médoc First Growths.
