The estate

On a magnificent gravel hilltop in the heart of the Saint-Estèphe terroir, there is a mysterious and fascinating land in medio aquaue (amid the waters), planted with the finest and nobles grape varieties… Welcome to the setting of Château Haut-Baradieu. It is also the history of an ancient Médoc family which has gradually built this estate over the generations. As early as 1678, parchments already mentioned a certain “Anney”, a ploughman in the village of Potensac in the Médoc. In 1876, his descendant Pierre began the Saint-Estèphe adventure by purchasing a small winegrowing property going by the name of “Villa Ossian”. It was later to become Château Haut-Baradieu.

The owner

Over several generations the Anney family brought this vineyard to the forefront of the wine scene. With the same passion and energy as his forefathers, Christophe Anney is now at the helm of this priceless terroir he has inherited. The utmost care and attention, the strictest requirements, next-generation equipment… No stone has been left unturned to produce a rare, smooth, charming wine with elegant yet powerful tannins.
