Tasting Notes and Scores

94 JD

The second wine of this incredible estate is the 2016 La Clarte de Haut Brion Blanc (76.3% Sémillon and 23.7% Sauvignon). As with the grand vin, it has an incredible mix of vibrancy and richness as well as beautiful tart citrus, lime, white flowers, and crushed rock aromas and flavors. Fresh, focused, medium-bodied, and with bracing acidity yet terrific concentration, it too needs short-term cellaring and should keep for two decades. - jebdunnuck.com, February 2019

The combination of honeysuckle and yellow citrus hits the spot! Ripe, juicy and fresh, with the essence of stone and sea salt in the finish, this is already showing quite well. The wine blends 76.3% Semillon and 23.7% Sauvignon Blanc. Tasted Sept 2019

Jeff Leve

Attractive chamomile, lemon-pith and lemon-grass aromas with a very composed palate that holds a sleek and flavorful, mostly citrus-fruit core and achieves great length and depth.

James Suckling

92-93 BI

Fresh, flinty, mineral. Some real grip on the palate, with richness and brightness in great balance. Long finish, very clean and pure. - April 2017

Composed of 76.3% Sémillon and 23.7% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2016 La Clarté de Haut-Brion features very pretty honeysuckle, yuzu, lemon drops and fresh pears scents with hints of kumquat and lime leaves. Medium-bodied with fantastic freshness, the palate features a great intensity of citrus flavors and a long chalky finish. LPB

The 2016 La Clarte de Haut-Brion is lovely. Bright and nicely chiseled, with terrific depth, the Clarte is wonderfully nuanced. Citrus and floral notes give this energetic Sémillon/Sauvignon blend terrific freshness.

This is very attractive, with a pale-gold colour and a gentle white pepper spice aroma accompanied by citrus zest, apple blossom and jasmine, with a touch of candle wax. It's very good, if a touch below the 2017. Persistent, richly aromatic, altogether a knockout second wine. - decanter.com, Jane Anson, December 2018

The 2016 Clarté Haut-Brion Blanc has an open-knit bouquet of orange blossom, lemon curd and light nutty aromas, hints of candle wax emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a lightly spiced opening. There’s plenty of grilled walnut and smoke here, and something almost white-Rioja-like toward the finish – and I mean that as a complement. This has just gained a little complexity in recent months. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting.

Mainly Sémillon. Rich and sweet and seductive. Spicy and racy. Drink 2018-2024. - jancisrobinson.com, April 2017
