A smooth and fruity Haut-Brion

In 2016, a vintage that had extreme weather conditions, the wine-growing team and the durability of the terroir helped create a magnificent vintage. The Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes were harvested between September 19th and October 13th for Le Clarence from Haut-Brion red 2016.

Clarence from Haut-Brion red 2016 is a wine that has an intriguing red-garnet color. Immediately the nose is ripe and aromatically fresh. The fruit is easy to enjoy. On the palate, the attack is supple, broad and juicy. This Pessac-Leognan evolves with its tight and creamy texture. The tannins are classy and prominent at the same time, perfectly balanced. Clarence is very close to being their first wine! An obvious success.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Blended of 51.3% Merlot, 13.1% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2.6% Petit Verdot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion features beautiful rose hip tea, fallen leaves and black olives scents over a core of redcurrant jelly, cassis and pencil shavings plus touches of menthol and pencil lead. Medium-bodied, the palate is finely crafted with delicate red and black fruits laced with loads of earthy accents, framed by grainy tannins and finishing on a lingering mineral note.
