la clarte de haut-brion, pessac-leognan 2016
Very salty and fruity with lots of dried pineapple and lemon rind. Medium-to full-bodied, dense and long. White pepper, too.
Barrel Sample. The 76% of high-yield Sémillon in this wine is unusual from Domaine Clarence Dillon's top estates. The blend (with 24% Sauvignon Blanc) is drawn from the second wine vats of Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion. Concentrated and lightly perfumed, it is likely to age quickly. (RV)
