2008 Le Clarence de Haut Brion, Pessac Leognan (Pre-Arrival)
89-91 points Robert Parker: "The second wine, the 2008 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, offers sweet, pure, black cherry and black currant fruit, a distinctive underlying minerality/earthy component, medium body, and a rich, flavorful personality. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and consume it over the following 15." (04/09) 88-91 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful sweet tobacco and berry aromas follow through to a full body, with big, juicy tannins and a chewy finish. A little tough, but shows concentration for a second wine." (04/09) K&L's notes - *+ 45% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc. This used to be called Bahans Haut-Brion. What is a Bahan? Red currant flavors and lots of finesse. Some boysenberry undertones. Light and elegant. Please note - 2008 Bordeaux futures are not in stock, but will arrive between Jan 2011 and Dec 2011 We will contact you for shipping instructions.
