Château Haut Brion La Clarence de Haut Brion 2020


La Clarence de Haut-Brion

Similar in style and elegance to its elder, the Château Haut-Brion red, this second wine brings together all the unique attributes of a fine wine, while reaching maturity more quickly. This wine has carried the name Château Bahans Haut-Brion since the first years of the twentieth century and was renamed Le Clarence de Haut-Brion beginning with the 2007 vintage, as a tribute to Clarence Dillon, who acquired the property in 1935.

Tasting Notes

A very beautiful vivid purple colour, along with a superb nose,
revealing ripeness on aromas of blackcurrant and cherry.
There are scents of fresh red fruit and woody, spicy hints of great elegance.
The first taste is tightly-knit and flavoursome, then the wine progresses,
with excellent concentration, powerful, but never dry.
The tannins are tightly-knit and plump.
Marvellous length on the palate, fruity and pleasant.
This is a superb Clarence de Haut-Brion, flawless and very well-balanced.
