One of the finest La Tour-Haut-Brions over the last 15 years, the 1995 offers a heady perfume of coffee beans, tobacco, spice, smoke, grilled herbs, and sweet red and black fruits. It is long and round, with copious quantities of red currants, as well as good underlying acid, which gives the wine definition, and a spicy, lush, sweet finish with light but noticeable tannin.
In 1900, Château La Tour Haut Brion belonged to Victor Coustau who also owned the neighboring estate, Château La Mission Haut Brion. Its wines were produced in the cellars of La Mission Haut Brion.
After the ownership of Mr. Coustau, the Château was sold to the Woltner family and eventually became the property of Domaine Clarence Dillon, together with La Mission Haut Brion and Château Haut Brion. However, starting with vintage 2006, La Tour Haut Brion was no longer produced and was incorporated into Domaine Clarence Dillon’s other wines.
