"Attractive chamomile, lemon-pith and lemon-grass aromas with a very composed palate that holds a sleek and flavorful, mostly citrus-fruit core and achieves great length and depth. Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"Very juicy and youthfully compact still, with a bracing hint to the white peach, lemon pith and star fruit flavors that lead the way. But behind them are notes of acacia, straw and shortbread that should emerge more with modest cellaring, leading to a slightly fuller feel overall. Your choice... Drink now through 2028. 1,480 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Composed of 76.3% Sémillon and 23.7% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2016 La Clarté de Haut-Brion features very pretty honeysuckle, yuzu, lemon drops and fresh pears scents with hints of kumquat and lime leaves. Medium-bodied with fantastic freshness, the palate features a great intensity of citrus flavors and a long chalky finish." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is lovely. Bright and nicely chiseled, with terrific depth, the Clarté is wonderfully nuanced. Citrus and floral notes give this energetic Sémillon/Sauvignon blend terrific freshness." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
