Winemakers Note

Very similar style and elegance to Château Haut-Brion red, this second wine is an ode to the specific terroir of the Graves appellation. It is an excellent introduction to Domaine Clarence Dillon red wines. The younger brother of Château Haut-Brion red possesses all the unique attributes of a high-quality wine that can be enjoyed sooner (we recommend waiting an average of five years before drinking the second wine). Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is a formidable first encounter before discovering Château Haut-Brion red wine. About Château Bahans Haut-Brion While this second-labe wine has carried the name Château Bahans Haut-Brion since the first years of the twentieth century, it was renamed Le Clarence de Haut-Brion beginning with the 2007 vintage, as a tribute to Clarence Dillon, who acquired the property in 1935. Tasting A very beautiful vivid purple colour, along with a superb nose, revealing ripeness on aromas of blackcurrant and cherry. There are scents of fresh red fruit and woody, spicy hints of great elegance. The first taste is tightly-knit and flavoursome, then the wine progresses, with excellent concentration, powerful, but never dry. The tannins are tightly-knit and plump. Marvellous length on the palate, fruity and pleasant. This is a superb Clarence de Haut-Brion, flawless and very well-balanced.
