From the owners of Château Haut-Brion, this is a top-vintage Bordeaux with 5-Star pedigree from the same stable as crazy-priced 1er Cru Haut-Brion. American financier Clarence Dillon visited Bordeaux in 1934 and fell in love with world famous Château Haut-Brion. The estate wasn’t then in peak form, but he wasn’t put off one iota. Certain it was the jewel of Bordeaux, he bought it and started his family’s long commitment to the region and fine wine. In 1983 they purchased La Mission Haut-Brion next door, and have since extended their portfolio in Bordeaux. Clarendelle is the initiative of his great grandson. It’s a premium blend Bordeaux that expresses the very best of the vintage - the superb 2015. Largely Merlot, it offers rich berry fruit, with rounded tannins, and already makes very enjoyable drinking.
