|2018||Le Clarence de Haut-Brion (Pessac-Léognan)|
It is not often that a second wine truly resembles its big brother or sister but here it does. Delivering all the tobacco leaf, cigar box, red berries and smoke you're looking for in a Pessac Leognan, this is a seriously good wine. The wine was blended from 51.3% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13.1% Cabernet Franc and 2.6% Petit Verdot. 92-94 Pts

Silky and polished, elegant and energetic, this delight easily delivers its smoky, medium-bodied, cassis essence and spicy character and should be enjoyable with just a few years of bottle age.

Refined, poised, silky and fresh, the wine is already showing its smoky, earthy, stony fruits. Medium bodied and with a nice salty hit ot the tannins, give this 4-5 years in your cellar and enjoy it for the next 15 years after that..
