Enjoy a stunning selection of iconic Bordeaux wines put together by H.R.H Prince Robert of Luxembourg on behalf of Domaine Clarence Dillon.

One magnum of Château Quintus 2016
The colour is a quite deep garnet-red. The first impression on the nose is of ripeness, but not to excess. Fresh fruity aromas predominate. The attack is smooth, silky, and caressing on the palate. The wine then spreads out without a trace of hardness. The middle palate is full-bodied and tight-knit, going into a long aftertaste. The fruity flavours are accompanied by discreet, elegant oak. After the flamboyant 2015 Quintus, the 2016 is fresh, fruity, remarkably well-focused and well-structured. It also displays a depth never before achieved by this estate.

One magnum of Château Haut-Brion 2016
Bright red with garnet-red and purple highlights. The nose is very expressive and complex: a combination of red and black fruit, violets, etc., plus a remarkable impression of freshness! The wine starts out full-bodied and juicy on the palate, then develops with incredible refinement, showing rich tannin and plenty of volume, but no aggressiveness. The wine is broad-based and thick, but not heavy. Not a hair out of place, nothing to excess. And what a flavour!!! This Haut-Brion is undoubtedly one of the château's greatest successes.

One magnum of Château Haut-Brion Blanc 2016
Beautiful deep yellow, almost golden colour. The bouquet is immediately elegant, complex, and fruity. Aromas of citrus, peach, and a touch of lemon are released after swirling in the glass. The wine is broad-based on the palate, starting out rich and full-bodied. It develops a full, aromatic flavour profile, without heaviness. Marking the wine without overwhelming it, Sauvignon Blanc contributes freshness and length. The 2016 white Château Haut-Brion shows impressive volume and power.

One magnum of Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2016
Very intense, remarkable, garnet-red colour. The nose shows impressively ripe fruit, concentration, and complexity. This is the epitome of a wine made from grapes with just the right degree of maturity. The wine starts out generous, sweet, and broad-based on the palate, going on seamlessly to reveal increasing body and power. The class, breeding, and sophistication of the tannin are obvious. 2016 La Mission Haut-Brion is certainly the most complete and charming the château has made in a long time.

One magnum of Château La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc 2016
Beautiful yellow colour with green highlights. Intense, fresh, fruity nose with a hint of menthol. White peach and citrus overtones appear when the wine is swirled in the glass. The wine is quite juicy on the palate, going on to show power and richness. The finish is mouth-watering, almost salty. This white Mission Haut-Brion is atypical in that this is the first time that Sauvignon Blanc constitutes the main variety in the blend. The white 2016 is a very classic vintage - polished and extremely precise.
