La Clarté de Haut-Brion
The nose has appealing nuances of citrus, white fruit, and a discreet touch of oak.
The wine starts out quite rich, going on to show freshness and crunchy fruit on the middle palate.
The aftertaste confirms its exuberant fruitiness.
2014 was marked by an extraordinary Indian summer that saved the vintage. Fine spring weather was conducive to a good start to the growing season. However, challenging summer conditions seriously slowed down ripening. Fortunately, the month of September was absolutely beautiful, with dry, extremely sunny weather accompanied by highs of close to 30°C. This superb weather, with cool night-time temperatures, enabled the grapes to ripen beautifully, and they were able to be brought into the vat house having reached a perfect level of ripeness.
