Fine vintage wines from Yats Wine Cellars

Chateau Haut-Brion has one of the longest and most interesting histories of any Bordeaux wine chateau. The property derives its name from an ancient Celtic term “Briga.” Loosely translated, this means a rise or mount in the land. This unique terroir was prized for Bordeaux wine vineyard land 600 years ago!

Thomas Jefferson,the third President of the United States traveled to Bordeaux in 1787 as America’s French ambassador. Jefferson was received at Chateau Haut Brion on May 25. After his visit, Jefferson wrote, “The soil of Haut-Brion, which I examined in great detail, is made up of sand, in which there is near as much round gravel or small stone and a very little loam like the soils of the Médoc. In the category of red wines,” he wrote, “there are four vineyards of prime quality:

1. Château Margaux, belonging to the Marquis d’Argicourt, who produces around 150 barrels that were sold by contract to a merchant named Jernon.

2. La Tour Ségur, (Chateau Latour ) in Saint-Lambert, belonging to Mister de Miromesnil, who produces 125 barrels.

3. Haut-Brion, two-thirds of which belong to the Count de Fumel who sold the harvest to a merchant called Barton. The other third belongs to the Count of Toulouse; in all, the château produces 75 barrels.

4. Château de la Fite, Chateau Lafite Rothschild) belonging to President Pichard of Bordeaux, which produces 175 barrels”.

The wine of Chateau Haut Brion is vinified in unique, double skinned, stainless steel vats, Interestingly, Chateau Haut Brion was one of the first Bordeaux chateau to begin using stainless steel for vinification. This took place in 1961. The double skinned, stainless steel vats were first introduced at Chateau Haut Brion in 1991. The wine is aged in up to 100% new, French oak for as long as 24 months, depending on the strength and character of the vintage.

The 48 hectare property is planted on deep gravely soil over clay and sand with a wide variety of minerals and quartz. With vines averaging 36 years of age. For the red wines, the vineyard is pruned to the double Guyot method and with a vine density of 10,000 vines per hectare. The vines of Chateau Haut Brion are kept at roughly 36 years of age.
