1855 Grand Cru Classe – 1st Growth
Château Haut-Brion is one of the oldest chateaux in Bordeaux. The first vines appeared here in the first century AD. In 1521, Château Haut–Brion became the first luxury wine brand in the world. In 1855, the estate obtained Premier Grand Cru Classé (Classified First Growth) classification. Chateau Haut Brion is the only winery outside of the Medoc to be classified in 1855.
In 1935, it was purchased by Clarence Dillon who restored the estate to its former glory. Today, his vision is continued by the fourth generation of the family, represented by Prince Robert of Luxembourg, Chairman since 2008.
In 2005, Prince Robert of Luxembourg launched the first premium Bordeaux wine brand, Clarendelle. He also undertook renovation at Château La Mission Haut-Brion and Chateau-Haut Brion. In 2011, he acquired Château Quintus in the famous Saint-Émilion appellation.
