2021 Clarte de Haut-Brion Blanc Pre-Arrival Offer
A blend of 55% Sémillon and 45% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2021 La Clarté de Haut-Brion exhibits aromas of crisp nectarine, citrus oil, white flowers and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, lively and textural, it's beautifully balanced, concluding with a long, saline finish. It's worth serious consideration this year.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Apr 2022)
The 2021 La Clarté de Haut-Brion will give readers a very good idea of how compelling the vintage is for white wines. The second wine of both La Mission and Haut Brion Blanc, La Clarté offers a beguiling bouquet redolent of lemon confit, orchard fruit, mint and white flowers. Bright and steely, but with an extra kick of mid-palate creaminess, La Clarté is absolutely gorgeous today. Drink 2024-2031.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2021 La Clarté de Haut-Brion Blanc has a fresh lime, pineapple and orange zest bouquet, well defined with moderate acidity. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity, taut and fresh, and quite harmonious toward the finish. Seductive white peachy notes linger on the aftertaste. Very fine. Drink 2024-2032.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Fresh, yet creamy, with a medium body. Notes of salted lemons and herbs with smoked almonds. Supple, ripe and well balanced. 56% semillon and 44% sauvignon.
The second wine of Haut-Brion, the 2021 La Clarte De Haut-Brion Blanc is well worth seeking out, offering melon ball, crushed citrus, and honeyed mineral-nuances in a medium-bodied, clean, straight, balanced package. It shows the vintage's fresh, pure, chiseled style.
White peach, flowers, yellow citrus, pomelo and yellow plums are all over the place here. Juicy and fresh, with a creamy, lemon and green apple finish, the endnote really keeps on going. The wine blends 55% Semillon and 45% Sauvignon Blanc. Drink from 2023-2034.
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
Expressive nose full of green apple, elderflower, honeysuckle, acacia, citrus zest and grapefruit. Lively and upfront, a rush of almost sweet but fresh lemon, peach and apple fruits, crunchy but with a lovely texture that gives a sense of weight on the palate. Full of life with direction and precision, a mouthwatering sensation as well as a full one. Great stuff here, so much character as well as purity of fruit and overall harmony. One worth seeking out. Drinking Window 2023 - 2040.
