Château Haut Brion is situated in the suburbs of the city of Bordeaux, in the Pessac-Léognan commune. Rated as a First Growth, it has one of the smallest productions however this Château has a rich history even getting a mention in Samuel Pepys’ diary in 1663 "drank a sort of French wine called Ho Bryen that hath a good and most particular taste I never met with". After many years of unsuccessful owners and the Château falling into ruin, Château Haut Brion’s luck changed when it was bought by American financier, Clarence Dillon, in 1935. Today, his great-grandson Prince Robert of Luxembourg runs the estate with much of its success owing to the winemaking Delmas family, in particular George Delmas (former manager of Cos d'Estournel) who have passed on their knowledge and skills over the generations. The château’s second wine is Clarence de Haut-Brion. (Prior to 2007 it was called Bahans-Haut-Brion but the name changed in recognition of Clarence Dillon).
