TASTING NOTES

"Aromas of forest floor, mushrooms, lavender and violets. Full-bodied, tight and structured with fantastic tannins and focus. Long and layered. Impressively toned. Give it three or four years to come together. Begin drinking in 2023." JamesSuckling.com

"Offers a warm, plush, inviting feel, with tar, melted licorice and cocoa notes rolling out first, followed by a swath of warm plum and blackberry reduction flavors. Shows an alluring thread through the finish. Needs a little time to unwind, but there's lots to like here. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2035. 7,150 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel, the 2015 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is a very serious second wine. The Clarence captures the personality of the vintage at Haut-Brion with terrific eloquence. An infusion of black cherry, mocha, tobacco, chocolate and violet leads into the dark, virile finish. What a gorgeous wine this is!" Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"The 2015 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is a blend of 57% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc picked from 8 September to 5 October. It has a more sedate bouquet compared to the La Chapelle, with slightly earthier black fruit laced with black olive and cedar aromas, but nothing overly powerful. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly more conspicuous tannin than the La Chapelle, yet it is just as fresh with a gentle but insistent grip on the finish. This seems just so natural and balanced that you could almost broach it now, although I would prefer to leave it in bottle 2 or 3 years because I am sure it will mature with style. Anticipated maturity: 2021 - 2038." Neal Martin
