Chateau Haut-Brion Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2016

In stock
France / 750ML / 2016
$304.99
$304.99

The 2016 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is a blend of 51.3% Merlot, 13.1% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2.6% Petit Verdot. It has a little more fruit compared to the La Chapelle de la Mission Haut Brion, yet not quite the same mineral tension or complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple black fruit, a fine line of acidity and gentle grip, but I would be seeking a little more personality and depth towards the finish. That said, it does have commendable freshness, but my money would be on the La Chapelle this year.

Ratings
As with La Mission Haut-Brion and La Chapelle, there is a beautiful signature here running from grand vin to second wine, a clear indication of quality. This is a little more intense than La Chapelle, which was pretty and floral, showing a firmer side with cassis and blackberry. A gorgeous, confident wine. It's very hard to think of a vintage where things are so well constructed and yet so soft. Clarence de Haut-Brion represents 31% of production, from a blend of 51.3% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13.1% Cabernet Franc and 2.6% Petit Verdot aged in 33% new oak. Decanter 91 Points
Awards
This second wine of Haut-Brion is structured and firm in tannins, with a dry core. By contrast, the wine also has great acidity and black currant fruitiness. It shows the structure that comes from this great vineyard. Barrel Sample: 93?›ƒ?ªƒ??95 Points Wine Enthusiast
