The group

Domaine Clarence Dillon is a family company managed by the fourth generation of a dynasty founded in 1935 by its namesake, Clarence Dillon. Since its creation, the company has been celebrating the French art de vivre, combining exceptional wines and ultimate gastronomy.

Domaine Clarence Dillon owns some of the most prestigious estates: Château Haut-Brion (a 1855 Premier Grand Cru Classé), Château La Mission Haut-Brion (Grand Cru Classé de Graves), Château Quintus (Saint-Emilion Grand Cru) and Clarendelle. In 2005, the company created the Bordeaux Fine Wine Merchant, Clarence Dillon Wines, which has become one of the most important Fine Wine Merchants in Bordeaux, and launched Clarendelle, “Inspiré par Haut-Brion”, Bordeaux’s first super-premium luxury brand wine, thus testifying to the far-sighted spirit that has characterized Domaine Clarence Dillon from the onset.

Since 2015, Domaine Clarence Dillon also has a Parisian residence, a true embassy of this French art de vivre so prized by Prince Robert de Luxembourg, representative of the family’s fourth generation. It houses the two-star gastronomic restaurant “Le Clarence” and “La Cave du Château”, a boutique of Fine wines and spirits from the greatest French terroirs.

The success of Domaine Clarence Dillon lies in its respect for tradition, its values, its unique expertise acquired over the centuries, and its innovative, modern vision.

Château Haut-Brion

The classic French legend

The first vines appeared on the gravel hillsides of Haut-Brion in the first century AD. In 1521, Château Haut-Brion became the first Bordeaux vineyard to be named after its terroir, instead of the owner or the parish, the first luxury wine brand in the world, obtaining the rare distinction of Premier Grand Cru Classé (Classified First Growth) in the 1855 classification, the only cru outside the Médoc to receive this prestigious title.

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

The soul of a Premier Grand Cru

Château La Mission Haut-Brion’s vineyard straddles the communes of Talence and Pessac and is located only a few miles southwest of Bordeaux’s city center. The estate, created and developed in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by the influential Lestonnac family, is situated just opposite that of Château Haut-Brion. It began to achieve wider renown in 1682, when it passed into the hands of the Lazarists Fathers, Priests of the Mission, to whom it owes its current name.

Château Quintus

The new star of the Right Bank

In 2011, Domaine Clarence Dillon purchased a superb property in Saint-Émilion, now renamed Château Quintus. In 2013, Château Quintus made the acquisition of another neighbouring property, as well as a third one in 2021. These three exceptional properties now form a a wine estate of 45 hectares producing one of Saint-Émilion’s finest wines.

Inspired by Haut-Brion

Elegance, balance, complexity

Created in 2005 by Prince Robert of Luxembourg, the Clarendelle family of wines, Inspired by Haut-Brion, embodies the subtle balance between know-how and a resolutely contemporary expression of the French art de vivre.

Le Clarence

Vibrant, modern cuisine and French art of living

In the centre of the Parisian golden triangle, Le Clarence is a gastronomic restaurant awarded two stars by the Michelin Guide and ranked 28th by the 50 Best, nestled within a superb 19th century private mansion. Chef Christophe Pelé brilliantly creates an instinctive, inspired and vibrantly modern style of cuisine. At Le Clarence, there is no set menu, but rather a variety of dishes based on exceptional and seasonal products. The land-sea associations, dear to the chef, are enhanced during each “sequence” of the meal by a myriad of satellite plates with marked flavours.

La Cave du Château

Fine wine boutiques for the initiated

La Cave du Château, an elegant fine wine boutique with a wide range of exceptional wines on the ground floor and basement of the private mansion located at n°31, avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt in Paris. A second shop is located near Bordeaux, in the Pavillon Catelan, which graces the entrance of Château Haut-Brion in Pessac. An address for the initiated, capable of satisfying anyone’s wishes, the store contains all kinds of treasures: a selection inspired by famous and exclusive labels, all from the finest terroirs of France, as well as the precious vintages of the Domaine Clarence Dillon properties.
