Dans le verre, le vin présente une couleur rouge violacée avec beaucoup d’éclat. Le nez, un peu réservé au début, nous fascine ensuite par sa complexité lors de l’aération. Aux notes de fruits rouges frais, se mêlent des notes beaucoup plus chaudes, comme le cacao. En bouche l’attaque est très douce, laissant un temps le vin apaiser le dégustateur. Mais cet état n’est que passager puisque rapidement la structure tannique se dévoile avec des tannins d’une grande finesse. Depuis quelques millésimes, et celui là le confirme, nous pouvons considérer Le Clarence de Haut-Brion définitivement comme un grand vin.

Le Guide Hachette Des Vins 2014

Le second de Haut-Brion est élevé pour une partie (20 à 25 %) en barriques neuves, pour l'autre dans des fûts ayant servi l'année précédente à l'élevage du grand vin. En dépit d'une forte proportion de merlot (52 %), le 2010 offre un bouquet discret – ou, plus exactement, n'offre encore qu'un bouquet discret, car dès que l'on découvre la teinte vive et rutilante de ce millésime, on devine qu'il possède un réel potentiel. Ce que confirme l'aération : les parfums montent en puissance, des notes de fleurs, de fruits rouges et de vendanges très mûres. Ronde en attaque, la bouche affiche ensuite de jeunes tanins vifs et fermes, qui donnent à l'ensemble un côté encore strict. Une bouteille racée, à attendre cinq ans.


English Version Blend: 52% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013: 93/100

The second wine of Haut-Brion is now called Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, and the 2010 is among the finest I have tasted there. It is a broad, powerful and more muscular wine than its cross-street rival, La Chapelle de la Mission, but all the same, it is wonderfully fresh and precise, with notes of blueberry and boysenberry as well as hints of smoke and wet stones. Endowed with gorgeous fruit, texture, purity and elegance, this relatively dense second wine demonstrates how draconian the selection process has become for the top estates in Bordeaux in recent years. The blend of this wine is 52% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc with just a touch of Petit Verdot. I would expect it to last at least 20 years, which is remarkable.

Kudos to the team at Haut-Brion and to the proprietors, the Dillon family, who are now represented admirably and meticulously by Prince Robert of Luxembourg. He has made some changes, and all of them seem to have resulted in dramatic improvements to what was already an astonishing group of wines.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, March 2011: 93-94/100

This is a fresh and lively young wine. The second wine of Haut-Brion has a lot of linear richness. I really like the texture of this with super polished tannins and vibrant acidity.

Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2011: 17/20

52% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Very bright blueish purple. Lighter nose than Chapelle La Mission but very refined and aromatic. Drawing-room refinement, really quite spindly. All frame and not much flesh at the moment. Very, very dry on the finish. There is even a hint of green. Will need quite a time to broaden out.

Château Haut-Brion-1er Cru Classé en 1855-Appellation Pessac-Léognan
Château Haut-Brion Château Haut-Brion is a First Growth in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. It is located in Pessac, Graves just one mile (2 km) from the city of Bordeaux. The vineyard consists of 109 acres (441,000 m²) producing 12,000 to 15,000 cases of wine each year. Located in the Graves region, it was the only non-Médoc estate to be included in the 1855 classification.

The cultivation of the vineyard of the château Haut-Brion in the middle of town with jealous care, its ability to age more than its neighbours – up to about twenty years, or even more, the men working under the lead of Jean Delmas, the modern cuvier, the artisitcally lead winemaking…. All this contributes to the success of a domainn, producing the greatest red wines and rare white wines.
Average age of vines is 30 years.

Château Bahans Haut-Brion, although a second wine, has the same treatment throughout as Château Haut-Brion. Grown on the same land as Château Haut-Brion, Château Bahans Haut-Brion, profits from the same planting and harvest techniques, and has the advantage of the same rigorous selection and thoroughness in vinification as the "Grand Vin".

Bahans Haut-Brion is aged partly in new barrels and partly in barrels that have been used for the previous year's First Growth. Undoubtedly, this Second Wine of a First Classified
Growth, Château Bahans Haut-Brion, is a great wine on its own merits.
