Pessac-Leognan, La Clarte de Haut Brion Blanc 2015 has lots of minerals and stones here. Full-bodied with phenolic tension and lime, lemon and chalk flavors. Layered and joyous. Just the right lees stirring. Why wait? Drink now.

Score: 94 James Suckling

This second wine comes from both La Mission Haut-Brion and Haut-Brion white parcels. This is a fine and ripe while also showing an herbal character. Citrus and yellow fruits work in harmony.

The 2015 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is soft, open-knit and wonderfully expressive. Scents of peach, apricot and white pepper meld together in an effortless, totally gracious white that will drink well early. This is a strong showing from the Clarté, Haut-Brion’s second white wine.

Very sweet Sémillon nose – almost honey! A hint of cat – very mineral. The Sémillon is all on the nose at the moment and the palate seems dominated by Sauvignon character. Lots to chew on.

Score: 17,5/20 Jancis Robinson

The second wine of both La Mission and Haut-Brion, assembling the younger vines from both estates. 73% Semillon, 27% Sauvignon – the Sauvignon resisted less well to the August rains so is slightly less aromatic than usual, so there is a higher percentage in the first wines. It means that this is a mellow, fairly rich and serious Clarté; very attractive.

Decanter

 

The 2015 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is a blend of 27% Sauvignon Bland and 73% Semillon picked between August 28 and September 8. Lime and dried pineapple furnish the nose that is uncomplicated, but fresh and charming, with hints of honeysuckle developing in the glass. The palate is fresh and edgy on the entry with lime, green apple and chalky notes, moderate weight in the mouth with just a slightly clipped finish.
