TASTING NOTES

"A lovely, dense white with pretty phenolic tension and dried-apple and peach character. Medium to full body. Phenolics give this tension." JamesSuckling.com

Rating: 94-95


"The 2018 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is composed of 79.2% Sémillon and 20.8% Sauvignon Blanc, harvested August 27 to September 5. It comes bounding out of the glass with bold notions of warm pineapple, guava and peach juice plus hints of lanolin, honeysuckle, lime cordial and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied with a lovely oily texture, it fills the mouth with exotic fruit, lifted by just enough freshness and culminating in a long, pineapple-laced finish." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2018 La Clarté de Haut-Brion soft, creamy and inviting. Lemon confit, orchard fruit, dried herbs and flowers all meld together in the Clarté, the Sémillon based white that is essentially the second white wine of both La Mission Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion. Supple and easygoing with impeccable balance, the Clarté is a delicious white that will offer plenty of enjoyment right out of the gate. This is very nicely done. The blend is 79.2% Sémillon and 20.8% Sauvignon Blanc." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Spicy, cedary oak on the nose and very ripe lemon and grapefruit, almost apricot. Deep and ripe in fruit up front, good freshness. Precise and yet quite rich on the palate initially, a little bit chewy, but loses intensity on the finish. Creamy, leesy texture to balance the fruit." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
