Luxury Power 50

42. Prince Robert of Luxembourg

Age: 43

The bespectacled prince presides over Château Haut-Brion and the lesser-known châteaux in the Domaine Clarence Dillon profile: La Mission Haut-Brion, La Tour Haut-Brion and Laville Haut-Brion. “He brings to Bordeaux a sense of elegance and dignity, both qualities found in the wines of Haut-Brion,” says Pétrus owner Christian Moueix of the prince.

A radical overhaul and streamlining of the names, and reinvestment in winemaking and quality has led to a surge of momentum among the properties.

Haut-Brion has been one of the most successful estates this year, with sales at auction even outperforming the likes of Lafite and Latour.
