La Clarté de Haut-Brion is the second wine of both Haut-Brion Blanc and La Mission Haut-Brion Blanc, produced from the declassified selections from both estates. This vintage is a blend of 51.7% Sauvignon Blanc and 48.3% Semillon, harvested from the 29th of August to the 10th of September. The estimated label alcohol degree is 13.5%. The 2019 La Clarté de Haut-Brion needs just a little swirling and coaxing to begin to shake loose lovely scents of Golden Delicious apple, ripe peaches and lemongrass with nuances of allspice, white pepper and shaved almonds. The medium-bodied palate offers a great intensity of spiced stone fruit flavors along with a satiny texture and seamless freshness, finishing savory. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, June 2020
The 2019 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is clear with green tints. This has a very tempting bouquet with subtle tropical fruit, passion fruit and even a touch of lychee, all very well defined, hints of orange blossom developing with time in the glass. The palate is well balanced with a slither of sour lemon on the entry and alerting the senses. Moderate depth, quite spicy relative to previous vintages with veins of stem ginger towards the finish. This is a very stylish La Clarté that should offer a decade of drinking pleasure. June 2020
Dense and thick with lots of dried-apple and peach character and hints of apricots. Full and round. Chewy at the end, but remains fresh. June 2020
