Tasting Notes

Effortless, well balanced, white peach, juicy pear, delicious, sculpted and extremely easy to love. 3.2ph, 40% new oak. A test with shade cloths to provide cover for the berries on a small part of the white vineyard is underway, as the team under Jean-Philippe Delmas reacts to the changing conditions.

Score: 93

The 2023 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is the second white wine from La Mission and Haut-Brion. It offers terrific cut and focus. Citrus peel, white flowers, mint, crushed rocks, white pepper and a touch of reduction lend notable energy to this airy, sculpted dry white. Time in the glass reveals its lovely mid-palate texture, rounding things out. The 2023 is a fine Clarté.

Score: 90 - 92

Antonio Galloni, Maturity: 2025-2033 30 April 2024

The 2023 La Clarté de Haut-Brion has quite an intense and lively bouquet: Granny Smith apples, pear and light, slate-like aromas. The palate is fresh on the entry with fine depth, perhaps needing a little more tension on the mid-palate, but this feels long and tender. It will drink after just one or two years.

Score: 88 - 90

Neal Martin, Maturity: 2026-2032 29 April 2024

A tight and focused second wine of La Mission and Haut Brion with a classy texture and beautiful length and focus. Medium body, fresh acidity and a crunchy finish. 56.3% sauvignon blanc and 43.7% semillon.

Score: 93 - 94
