Domaine Clarence Dillon
Domaine Clarence Dillon is a family business, founded in 1935 by Clarence Dillon, perpetuating for four generations the tradition of a French art de vivre combining exceptional wines and high-class gastronomy.
His Royal Highness Prince Robert de Luxembourg, great-grandson of Clarence Dillon, Robert de Luxembourg knew from an early age that Domaine Clarence Dillon would be his life's passion. Aware that he held a small piece of France's history in his hands, he followed in the footsteps of his forebears, continuing the building work initiated by Jean de Pontac in the 16th century. A visionary, a true conductor, he has surrounded himself with a passionate team, entirely devoted to the same ideal of excellence.
The story of Domaine Clarence Dillon began in 1935, when Clarence Dillon acquired Château Haut-Brion with the aim of restoring its letters of nobility and bringing it back into the circle of legendary great wines. This bold and courageous vision has been perpetuated ever since.
1983: Acquisition of Château La Mission Haut-Brion
2011: Birth of Château Quintus in Saint-Emilion, the new star of Rive droite
2015: Opening of Le Clarence gourmet restaurant (** Michelin) in Paris

The 2016 vintage:
After a cool, rainy winter and spring, flowering, on both banks, proceeded with almost miraculous homogeneity. The summer's great drought was ended by a spell of rain in mid-September, which helped to perfect ripening. In October, no rain disrupted the harvest. The cool nights, combined with the warm days, enabled us to produce structured wines that were also fresh and fruity. Paradox or miracle of nature? The great 2016 vintage reaffirms, once again, the strength of great terroirs.
