Tasting Note:

We still haven't tasted the Clarence Dillon 2019s and 2020s. They were one of the few estates not to send samples during lockdown. How we've missed their wines. The 2021 range is superb both for reds and whites, with La Mission and Haut Brion amongst our favourite wines of the vintage. The aromatic profile is really superb, lots of florality, griotte, roses, pure red and black fruits, vanilla and sandalwood. There's terrific energy and lift to the fruit, coupled with great definition and dazzling detail. Small crisp berries, tense, nervy and layered, culminating is taut, super-fine tannins laced with minerals and salts. A beautiful and harmonious La Mission. Bravo. 47.9% Merlot, 45.8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6.3% Cabernet Franc, 73% new oak.
