Le Clarence de Haut Brion 2008 Chateau Haut Brion
|Brand||Chateau Haut Brion|
The second wine, the 2008 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, offers sweet, pure, black cherry and black currant fruit, a distinctive underlying minerality/earthy component, medium body, and a rich, flavorful personality. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and consume it over the following 15.
Winespectator / James Suckling (88)
Open-knit, with a briary edge to the currant, tobacco, tar and roasted sage notes, followed by a lightly edgy feel on the finish. The renamed second wine of Haut-Brion (used to be Bahans).
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
