Tasting Notes and Scores

94 TA

This was served at the 67 Pall Mall hard hat party in July, an evening to mark the beginning of what will become their new Bordeaux club in a few years time. It was hot outside, and this was the wine that I kept going back to all evening, it was just so delicious. The has the right amount of weight through the mid palate to give impact and personality. It’s steely also, zingy minerality, with juicy peach and citrus, followed by green apple and steel. Love it. Jane Anson Oct 2023 - Inside Bordeaux

Tim Atkin

94 JS

A fresh and layered white with pear and melon aromas and flavors. Some green papaya, too. It’s full and deep with lots of fruit and flavor. Some minerality at the end. About 75% semillon, the rest sauvignon. Drink or hold May 2023

James Suckling

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. Lisa Perrotti-Brown March 2023 - The Wine Independent

93 JL

Green apples, honeysuckle, pears, spice, and pomelo show in the nose. On the palate, the wine is sweet, creamy, and ready to go, leaving you with sweet, yellow citrus, pears, and a dab of marzipan in the finish. The wine is produced from 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc, 13.4% ABV, 3.28 pH. Drink from 2025-2032. Tasted Aug 2023

Released in a new, clear bottle, the 2020 La Clarte De Haut-Brion Blanc is up-front and vibrant, with juicy grapefruit and lemon curd-like aromatics to go with a medium-bodied, racy, yet balanced, and elegant style on the palate. It's another, fresh, crisp, concentrated white in the vintage with lots to love. March 2023

Jeb Dunnuck

92 DR

Elderflower, roasted almonds, perfume - almost like Turkish Delight but subtle with lemon, apple and white pear on the nose. Clean and crisp, light and delicate, a nice weight in the glass - acidity isn't totally high but there is brightness from a shot of ripe lemon and lime juice balanced by a cool, crystalline mineral aspect with wet stone nuances. Softly charming. 3.7pH. Drinking Window: 2024 - 2033

The 2020 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is showing nicely in bottle, bursting with notions of grapefruit, nectarine, lemongrass and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a sweet core of fruit and a chalky finish, it will offer demonstrative drinking young. WK April 2023

Wine Advocate

90-92 MS

(75% SM, 25% SB; 13.4% ABV)
Pale, cloudy; slightly reduced and fairly closed; full and supple; dry, broad, and very Semillon in style, guava and melon core-flavor, pure, with a nice concentration, good length across the palate, if not the vitality and “race” of a vintage like the 2017 or 2014, for example, and with nice aromatic persistence. You do taste the vintage here, at least in this locale and with these winemaking choices. It’s good, and it is nicely balanced, but it lacks a bit of tension and drive. To drink relatively young. 2023–30.

Michael Schuster

90-92 AG

The 2020 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is airy, bright and gracious, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Citrus peel, white flowers, mint, sage and green apple are all laced together in this breezy, charming white.

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. Feb 2023

Full bottle 1,285 g. Cask sample taken 12 April. 74.8% Sémillon, 25.2% Sauvignon Blanc picked 19 to 28 August. Estimated alcohol 13.4%.
Very dense and limpid and immediately offering so much more than the other dry whites from this appellation. Smoky minerality and an amazing floral freshness. White blossom? Then it's surprisingly lightweight on the palate (after that dense nose). This really races along. Sort of like a Victorian child with a hoop, to venture in to Tam territory. Already lots of fun to drink, with low astringency and good fruit/acid balance. Though not especially persistent.
