Today, the Dillon family owns Chateau La Mission Haut-Brion. Its vineyard covers 30 hectares in Pessac Leognan, 27 of which are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and 3 with Sauvignon Blanc and Semillón. The newly constructed tasting room and cellars here, which opened in 2007, are quite impressive. There's a high-quality second wine too, La Chapelle de La Mission Haut-Brion.
