Tasting Notes

Spicy and full of tangy citrus fruit, there is lively, bright acidity to this iteration of Clarté. The palate has a strong grapefruit and apple skin character. The wine is narrow and focused, but has the classic slick texture of the estate.

Thomas Parker MW, Farr Vintners, April 2023

Aromas of oyster shell and crushed stone with lemon curd and dried lemon. Full and layered with a chewy, phenolic texture and a long and flavorful finish. Wonderful. 53.7% sauvignon blanc and 46.3% semillon.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2023

A blend of 53.7% Sauvignon Blanc and 46.3% Sémillon, the 2022 La Clarté de Haut-Brion has a delicate yet lively bouquet intermingling aromas of lemon, lime tree, perfectly ripe pear and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, juicy and energetic, it's a fresh, perfectly balanced wine with a delicate, fruity and slightly tannic finish.
