Tasting notes for the Château Haut-Brion 1975

  • EYE: The visual examination reveals a deep ruby-colored robe, indicative of the aging process this vintage has undergone. Brown and amber hues underscore its maturity, while clarity and density bear witness to the quality of preservation in the wine cellar of the Palais de L'Élysée.
  • NOSE: The aromatic bouquet delicately unfolds, revealing nuanced and refined complexities that have matured gracefully over the years. Subtle notes of leather, tobacco, and forest floor harmonize seamlessly, evoking the richness of the history encapsulated in this Haut-Brion 1975.
  • MOUTH: On the palate, the tasting unveils a silky texture and an evolved complexity. Flavors of dried fruits, cedar, and truffle gracefully unfold, showcasing enduring elegance. The matured tannins provide a structure that has withstood the test of time, while a subtle acidity maintains a surprising freshness.


In short: This Château Haut-Brion 1975, straight from the wine cellar of the Palais de L'Élysée, with its evolved robe, refined aromatic bouquet, and complex palate, demonstrates an exceptional aging potential, suggesting optimal preservation for another 5 to 10 years. It pairs elegantly with dishes such as a morille-crusted beef fillet, roasted veal chop, a selection of aged cheeses, and a red berry tart.

Château Haut-Brion

Iconic wine estate in Bordeaux


Château Haut-Brion, located in the Graves region, is the ancestor of all the grands crus. The story begins in 1525, when Jean de Pontac, officer of the Bordeaux Parliament, acquired Haut-Brion. Jean de Pontac and his descendants succeeded in producing a new type of wine, well known in England under the name of "New French Claret".

This wine was met with great success, although it was Count Joseph de Fumel, a De Pontac descendant, who brought fame and glory to the estate in the 18th century. After the revolution the estate passed from hand to hand, to arrive in 1935 in the hands of Clarence Dillon, an American financier, wine lover. The castle is still in the family, it is now run by his grandson, the Prince Robert of Luxembourg.

The vineyard covers an area of 48 ha, is located on the outskirts of the city of Bordeaux. The vineyard is planted on gravelly soils with clay subsoil. The vineyard is composed of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. A small area of less than 3 ha is planted to 52% in Semillon, 47% in Sauvignon and in 1% Petit Verdot.
