La Clarté Haut Brion is the new name for Les Plantiers Haut Brion - the second white wine of both Haut Brion Blanc and La Mission Haut Brion Blanc with around 1000 cases produced annually.
The 2020 is 46.3% Semillon, 53.7% Sauvignon Blanc. 13.8% alcohol with ageing in 36% new oak.
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.
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.
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.
