2019 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1480720 94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A Merlot-dominated blend that includes 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Le Clarence De Haut-Brion is one sexy 2019 that would do just fine in a lineup of top Napa Cabernet Sauvignons. Loads of crème de cassis, graphite, blueberries, and violets notes all emerge from the glass, and this full-bodied beauty has a killer texture, building tannins, and a great, great finish. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Made from 73% Merlot, this second wine of Château Haut-Brion is ripe, full, and generously structured. It is a second wine that has its own strong personality. Some serious tannins for texture and chocolate richness support the blackberry fruits. The wine will certainly age well and over a long period. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is a blend of 72.8% Merlot, 16.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10.9% Cabernet Franc, harvested from the 10th of September to the 3rd of October. The estimated label alcohol degree is 15%. With a deep garnet-purple color, it springs from the glass with vivacious notes of crushed black and red plums, redcurrant jelly and wild blueberries plus suggestions of forest floor, lilacs, black olives and menthol. The medium to full-bodied palate practically quivers with energy, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing on a lingering aniseed note. Simply delicious!

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion is fabulous. All the signatures of the Grand Vin come through in a smaller-scaled, more approachable style than found in its sibling. Smoke, grilled herbs, menthol, licorice and spice are some of the many notes that enrobe the palate. Backward and yet full of intrigue, the 2019 will be easy to enjoy young, but it also clearly has the stuffing to age for years. Readers will find a wine endowed with tremendous character. Wow! (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is a pretty serious and structured Clarence, with firm tannins that give walls and form to the wine overall. Has depth and character to the black fruits, and is one where the Merlot character is almost masquerading as Cabernet Sauvignon. Great quality, with ageing potential and one that gives a real step towards the first wine. (JA) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

PLEASE NOTE: 2019 Bordeaux Futures are being offered without any added tariffs. If there are applicable tariffs at the time the wines are imported in 2022, we will contact you with the option to pay tariffs to have the wine delivered, or cancel the order with no penalty. 91-93 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2019 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion offers more red fruit on the nose than the La Chapelle de La Mission, perhaps more vibrant and expressive at this early stage. Touches of orange sorbet come through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fleshy and forward. A hint of dark chocolate appears towards the generous finish that develops more structure after three or four hours in the glass." (6/2020)
