Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2019

Haut-Brion

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 96.0

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.

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2019 Le Clarence De Haut-Brion shows classic Pessac elegance in its beautiful bouquet of pure cassis and darker currant fruits as well as smoked tobacco, scorched earth, violets, and truffly earth. These carry to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated second wine that has notable structure, plenty of incredibly fine-grained tannins, and a great finish. It unquestionably shows classic Haut-Brion character and is a classy, balanced, elegant Pessac to drink over the coming 15-20 years.

Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2019 is deep garnet-purple in color. It needs a little coaxing to bring out notes of warm blackcurrants, black cherries, and mulberries, plus touches of pencil shavings and violets. The full-bodied palate is densely packed with bright, shimmery fruit, supported by fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and minerally.
