Tasting Notes
Wine Enthusiast - "There is a serious side to this wine. It shows much of the slightly austere character of young Haut-Brion. At the same time, the fine red fruits and acidity give it a lift and accessibility. This wine will develop relatively quickly. Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points"
Ratings
The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is a blend of 57% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 8 September and 5 October. Compared directly with the La Chapelle Mission Haut-Brion, I find that this does not quite possess the same delineation at the moment. This is broodier and more introspective in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, layers of dark berry fruit tinged with tobacco and cedar, gaining weight towards the finish that fans out with a sense of conviction. This should turn out to be an authoritative deuxième vin that will probably be consumed in its youth, but clearly possesses the substance to repay ageing. Those with wise heads will afford it 5-6 years in bottle. Barrel Sample: 91-93"
Awards
James Suckling - "Racy and refined second wine with polished and pretty tannins. Full body. Pretty. Barrel Sample: 93-94"
Production Notes
Blend: 57% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc.
Other Notes
Château Haut-Brion is the oldest and by far the smallest of the "Premiers Grands Crus" vineyards of the Gironde 1855 classification. Château Haut-Brion is one of the few remaining family-owned domains of the Bordeaux region with a history going back to the 16th century. It has been owned by the American Dillon family since 1935.
