La Clarence de Haut-Brion
Beautiful dark red colour. The bouquet is very attractive,
displaying subtle notes of ripe red fruit.
Swirling in the glass reveals a delicious, full-bodied and juicy
wine that develops beautifully on the palate,
with a fine tannic texture. The aftertaste is impressively long,
underscored by elegant hints of oak.
The spring of 2018 was marked by frequent stormy weather.The growing season started very well, although was later slowed down as a result of a violent hailstorm on the 26th of May. The vines nevertheless recovered fairly quickly. The month of June was relatively warm, conducive to even flowering. A hot summer followed, with little rainfall. Véraison (colour change) took place under ideal conditions. A high-pressure system set in during the month of September. The grapes were picked under clear blue skies at peak ripeness and in excellent condition.
