Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot
Wine Region: Pessac-Léognan, Bordeaux

Winemaking: Sustainable viticulture, not vegan

 

Tasting Notes: Exhibits aromas and flavors of dark fruits like blackberry and plum, along with notes of tobacco, earth, graphite, and spice. The wine usually has a well-balanced structure, with smooth tannins and a long, persistent finish.

 

The Estate: It is the second wine of Château Haut-Brion, a renowned First Growth estate located in the Pessac-Léognan. Château Haut-Brion is one of the oldest wineries in France, classified in 1855 as First Growth. As the second wine it is made from the younger vines of the estate and offers a more approachable and early-drinking version of the Grand Vin. However, it still embodies the elegance, complexity, and depth characteristic. Originally named Bahans Haut-Brion, the wine was renamed Le Clarence de Haut-Brion starting with the 2007 vintage. The name change was a tribute to Clarence Dillon, the American financier who purchased Château Haut-Brion in 1935.

The wine is produced with the same meticulous care and attention to detail as the Grand Vin, benefiting from the estate's exceptional terroir and the expertise of the winemaking team. While it is designed to be more accessible in its youth compared to the Grand Vin, Bahans Haut-Brion still has good aging potential, often developing additional complexity with several years of cellaring.

 

Suggested food and wine pairing: Very food friendly wine, goes with red grilled meat (beef, lamb, venison, duck), roast chicken with herbs, turkey with a savoury herb stuffing, grilled or roasted pork loins or chops, dishes dominating with mushrooms, truffles, grilled vegetables (root vegetables, aubergine, zucchini, bell peppers), cheese (aged cheddar, gouda, parmesan, Roquefort or Stilton).
