Tasting Note:

52% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot cropped at 41 hl/ha. This is a step up on the Chapelle de La Mission. As with all the first growths there seems to be an obsession with making less grand vin and the immediate beneficiary is the second wine. We honestly believe that Forts de Latour, Carruades de Lafite, Petit Mouton, Pavillon Rouge and Clarence de Haut Brion are all the finest examples to date. Aromatically reserved, powerful, with hints of high toned berry fruits, stones and brooding spiced mulberries. This possesses huge extract and an abundance of pure silky fruit. A firm, muscular Clarence with wonderful grippy tannins, splendid structure and a dark chocolate finish.
