The 2020 La Clarte de Haut-Brion flies out of the glass with exuberant notions of white peaches, fresh pineapple, and lime leaves with touches of chalk dust and struck flint. The medium-bodied palate is racy and intense with tropical fruits and mineral accents, finishing on a chalky note.

The 2020 La Clarté de Haut-Brion, bottled end of May, maintains the attractive orchard fruit, Granny Smith and light wild peach aromas on the nose that I found from barrel. The palate is well balanced with a twist of bitter lemon, fresh with a slightly pithy finish. Enjoy over the next decade.

Château Haut-Brion

Haut Brion has arguably been the most consistent First Growth over the past thirty years. The property can be traced back to the 14th century although the current owners can track their lineage back to 1935, when the American financier, Clarence Dillon bought the rather beleaguered estate. Now, Clarence Dillon’s great grandson, Prince Robert of Luxembourg presides. The other name synonymous with Haut Brion is that of the Delmas family. Three generations have made Haut Brion their life’s work, George (1921-1960), Jean Bernard (1960-2003) and Jean-Philippe (2003-to present).

Situated upon two gravel croupes, this exceptional terroir in the suburbs of Bordeaux benefits from the heat of the surrounding buildings, which enables the vines to achieve perfect ripeness in even the most challenging vintages. Due to the extra warmth, harvest dates are usually amongst the earliest in Bordeaux. The vineyards are planted with 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc for the reds and Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon for the whites. Aside from the Grand vins, the estate produces a second red wine, Clarence de Haut Brion, previously called Bahans de Haut Brion and a second white wine, Clarté de Haut Brion, previously named Plantiers de Haut Brion.
