Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
In the past, Haut-Brion has been both a model for, and a forerunner of, the great wines of Bordeaux. Its history stretches back 5 centuries, and its renown is immense.
Today, Prince Robert of Luxembourg, a board member from the age of 18, is completely involved with Domaine Clarence Dillon. He manages Haut-Brion with passion and belongs to one of the oldest families to own a Premier Cru. His great grand-father Clarence Dillon, a New York banker, bought the property in 1935.
Haut-Brion devotes 49 hectares to red grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon 41%, Merlot 48%, Cabernet Franc 10%, Petit Verdot 1%) while 3 hectares are cultivated with white grape varieties (Semillon 52,6%, Sauvignon 47,4%).
