2015 LE CLARENCE DE HAUT BRION / 紅顏容副牌

Something about Le Clarence de Haut Brion

The Château Haut-Brion Second Wine is named Clarence de Haut-Brion in honor of Clarence Dillon, who purchased the Château in 1935. This wine presents all the characteristics of the Grand Vin but with a more accessible approach, allowing the taster to appreciate the full extent of its personality earlier on.

The unique character of Château Haut Brion is expressed also through a white wine. Extremely limited in production, the Château Haut-Brion White is Bordeaux’s most sought-after dry white wine. Derived from a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, the Château Haut-Brion White offers the fantastic aromatic fullness of a sweet wine in a dry white format. With a great concentration, amplitude and an atypical length, this wine is defined by its unique style.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

This is a seriously impressive vintage for this second label of Chateau Haut-Brion. Blended of 57% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion displays a medium to deep garnet-purple color and expressive notes of crushed black cherries, blackberries, warm plums, dusty soil and spice cake with touches of dried roses and cigar boxes. Medium to full-bodied with wonderful concentration and depth, it features firm, beautifully rounded tannins and lively acid, finishing long and earthy. 2020 - 2039

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.

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.

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! 2020 - 2035

Tasted blind. Mid crimson. Slightly muddy, non-exhibitionistic nose. Fresh start and definitely Graves without being at all showy. Drink 2024-2038
