Buy chateau haut-brion wines In 1553, Jean de Pontac (1488-1589) bought the title to the domain of Haut-Brion, giving birth to a wine estate whose be preserved and promoted over the centuries by four families.

In 1749 prior to the tragi excesses unleashed by the Terror, the eighteenth century can certainly be considered as the golden age of Chateau Haut-Brion. Its glorious successes were in no small measure attributable to the leadership of Joseph de Fumel.

In 1801 on 9 ventose, year IX (February 28, 1801) Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigotd, prince de Benevent, purchased Chateau Haut-Brion from Jacques Pons, Maria Joseph de Fumel. At that time, Talleyrand served as minister of foreign affairs for Napoleon Bonaparte, the future Napoleon I.

In 1836, following the difficult times faced by Jan-Henry Beyerman's window, Joseph Eugene Larrieu (1777-1859) acquired the property at auction. Thus began another period in which Chateau Haut-Brion was to be under the control of a family dynasty. Like his predecessors, Larrieu set about enlarging and improving the property.

Clarence Dillon (1882-1979) was and American financier and lover of France.

Dillon's passion for France and French culture had its roots in his family history: his mother, Bertha Stenbock, was of French descent on her mother's side. Born in Lousiana, she took pride in her origins and was perfectly at ease in her mother's native tongue.

Dillon purchased Chateau Haut-Brion on May 13, 1935.
