Le Clarence De Haut Brion is the Château Haut Brion’ second wine. Château Haut-Brion is the only property from outside the Médoc to be included in the Premier Grand Cru Classé (Classified First Growth) of the 1855 Classification and its viticultural history can be traced back centuries. Its Pessac-Léognan vineyard is planted to include Cabernet Sauvignon (c.40%), Merlot (c.18%), and Cabernet Franc (c.18%). Referred to as the Château Bahans Haut-Brion since the early twentieth century, in 2007 it was renamed Le Clarence de Haut-Brion as a tribute to Clarence Dillon, who acquired the estate in 1935. To taste, the Clarence de Haut-Brion adopts all of the unique qualities of the Grand Vin, to include potent minerality and notes of spices and aromatics. However, the Clarence de Haut-Brion benefits from being able to be drunk earlier than its counterpart.
