    Second red wine of La Mission Haut-Brion, created in 1991 and greatly improved since 2006 by the addition of the entire vineyard of La Tour Haut-Brion.

    Rated 90/100 by N. MARTIN «The 2020 La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion offers plenty of ripe brambly red fruit on the nose : Cranberry and wild strawberry, hints of blue fruit in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, rounded tannins that lend a very smooth texture and approachability. Red fruit merge into blacker fruit towards the second half that displays fine spidity and quite a persistent finish. There is something sedate about this La Chapelle, comfortable in its own skin.» (December 2022)

    Rated 91/100 by N. MARTIN «The 2020 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is quite flamboyant on the nose with black plum, boysenberry and sous-bois scents, just a touch of pitted black olive. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshly, with more weight and amplitude compared to the La Chapelle and with a lovely savory/Provençcal herb tincture towards the finish. This is a lovely Deuxième vin.» (December 2022)

    Rated 93/100 by La Revue du Vin de France : « Malgré la richesse solaire du fruit, l'accent est mis sur la tension, la fraîcheur, avec un noble caractère fumé qui s'affirme sur la longueur du vin. »

    Occupying the southern flank of the Haut-Brion gravelly hillside and capable of exceptional success in "small" vintages, La Mission is a powerful first growth in a more fleshy and opulent register than Haut-Brion. Proof of this is its formidable 2017 rated 96/100 by M. Galloni (Vinous) "Effortless, graceful and wonderfully nuanced, this 2017 simply has everything going for it. What a wine". As for the 2016, rated 99/100 by N. Martin (Vinous), critics compare it to the dazzling 1989, no less!

    Rated 94/100 by Neal Martin after bottling « The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, very focused and refined with darker fruit compared to the nose. Traces of tar and cedar surface towards the classic finish that linger nicely, although Haut-Brion just has a tad more persistence and depth. Superb. » (February 2020)

    Rated 96/100 by Antonio Galloni after bottling « In 2017, La Mission plays very much in the red fruit and floral end of the spectrum. Effortless, gracious and wonderfully nuanced, the 2017 simply has it all. What a wine! » (March 2020)

    Rated 95/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin « La décantation lui fait prendre une note plus suave rappelant la framboise. Cette suavité se retrouve en bouche dans une stimulation très délicate où tout caresse en fondant et laisse une très grande place à l'arôme. Cette sensation n'est pas sans rappeler la dégustation des grands Bourgogne rouges. Grande finale subtile et ravissante. » (Feb. 2020)

    Haut-Brion is the most famous of all the Bordeaux growths, having twice been classified as 1er grand cru, in 1855 and again in 1959 (Graves classification). Haut-Brion is both the oldest of the Grands Crus, with more than five centuries (since 1509) behind it, and the most innovative, introducing stainless steel vats as early as 1960 and green harvesting as early as 1980.
    Its particular situation within the Bordeaux agglomeration makes it the earliest Premier Cru on the left bank, a clear advantage in less mature vintages. For this reason, Haut-Brion's consistency is a benchmark for the whole of Bordeaux, with the intense bouquet of fresh earth, smoke and pine resin so characteristic of the appellation.
    Fortunately, the unique silhouette of its bottle has disrupted the Asian market and has not triggered the same speculative interest there as it has for the other 1er grands crus classés. Haut-Brion is today without question the most qualitative and the least expensive of the premiers.

    Rated 99/100 by the Revue du Vin de France « Moelleuse, la chair du vin reste paradoxalement tendue, serrée, et finit sa parade en bouche sur une impression de grâce longiligne. Le potentiel d’évolution de ce grand millésime est énorme. » (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 100/100 by En Magnum « En bouteille, je retrouve ce côté incroyable qui résume tout ce que j'aime dans un grand Bordeaux. La caresse, le velouté, la noblesse de texture et de tannins et cette grande personnalité absolument unique. » (Apr. 2020)

    Second objective: to shine in the next Saint-Emilion classifications (its immediate neighbours are Ausone, Belair-Monange, Angélus and Canon, all 1st classified grands crus).

    2017 vintage rated 94/100 by Antonio Galloni "Rich and dense on the palate, Quintus is a bold, hedonistically opulent Saint-Émilion in 2017. Soaring Franc overtones play off the Merlot nicely, adding both aromatic presence and a real feeling of saline intensity that comes through, especially on the finish". (March 2020)

    2017 vintage rated 94/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin "Caressant à l’attaque, le vin devient gras au milieu, ample, puis très fruité. Il se développe savoureux, sur un toucher noble, tout en évoluant puissant, avec beaucoup de présence et un éclat fruité sophistiqué". (Oct. 2020)

    In 2012, Haut-Brion bought and combined two grands crus classés (Tertre-Dauguay and L'Arrosée) on the slopes of Saint-Émilion (Côte Ausone), and put a foot in the right bank, called Quintus because it is their fifth property (after Haut-Brion, La Mission HB, Laville HB and Latour HB).

    Their first objective is to make fine, long wines, focusing on freshness and delicacy rather than power or density, more typical of the left bank than the right bank.

    Second objective: to shine in the next Saint-Emilion classifications (its immediate neighbours are Ausone, Belair-Monange, Angélus and Canon, all 1st classified grands crus).

    2016 rated 94/100 by Neal Martin "The 2016 Quintus has a very noble bouquet with beautifully defined blackberry and briary fruit, wonderfully integrated oak and a genuine sense of focus and poise. This is a beautifully crafted Saint-Émilion and one of the best releases of Quintus to date". (Aug. 2020)
