This has polish, well-finessed fruits, savoury, leafy character that is signature to the Cabernet Sauvgnon grape in a cooler vintage. Classical, sculpted and juicy. One of the value wines to look out for. Jean-Jacques Dubourdieu winemaker here, 33% new oak, gravel dominant soils.

For more than a hundred years, Chateau Haura consisted of two ancient adjoining properties in the commune of Illats : Hillot and Haura.
This 15 hectare wine farm extends over two gravelly outcrops separated by a little valley. It has been known for a long time for making a sweet white wine of exceptional subtlety.
In 2002 the owner, Bernard Leppert, rented it to Denis Dubourdieu. Although it had mostly been planted up with white vines, on these most exceptional graves terroirs, it has since been largely replanted to red vines to produce a great classical Bordeaux wine. Chateau Haura however still produces a few barrels of delicious noble rot sweet wines.
In the meantime the Dubourdieu family has acquired a few adjoining plots on one of the very best graves terroirs, with the resulting production of red wines of exceptional quality
