Domaine Clarence Dillon owns two of the most important properties in Bordeaux, Chateau Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion. La Clarté is made with grapes from both estates which are managed with precision by Jean-Philippe Delmas, the third generation of his family to do so.

“The 2012 La Clarte de Haut Brion is an attractive white to drink now and over the next few years, while the flavors remain bright and focused. Lemon peel, white flowers, lime and crushed rocks are all nicely delineated in the glass. The Clarte is Haut-Brion’s second white wine and is made from the estate’s younger vines and from fruit that doesn’t make the cut for the top labels.” 89 points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com

Pair with rich seafood dishes such as lobster, roasted sea bass or a mature cheese such as a vintage Comté.

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
