Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 69.4% Sémillon and 30.6% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2017 La Clarté de Haut-Brion opens with very sprightly peaches and fresh lemon juice notes with nuances of honeysuckle and chalk dust. The palate is medium-bodied with vibrant citrus and stone fruit flavors, finishing long and chalky.
