Description: Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2023

Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2023 – Winter was characterized by rainfall and relatively low temperatures. Following bud break in mid-March, the vines experienced rapid growth, aided by consistent rainfall and warm days. This rapid growth required vigilant attention from our vineyard teams to maintain vine health. Thanks to the dedication of our winegrowers and the vineyard’s advantageous location, which ensures good ventilation and minimal leaf wetness, mildew pressure was effectively managed throughout the season. Flowering occurred under excellent conditions, promising a generous harvest. This year, green harvesting operations were intensified, with extensive thinning and leaf removal on the eastern side of the vineyard. Trimming was limited to preserving soil moisture and shading the grapes.

The Le Clarence de Haut-Brion 2023 vintage demanded precision and quick response in vineyard management, showcasing the strength of this exceptional terroir through a generous, healthy, and high-quality harvest.

Harvesting of the red grapes commenced on September 6, amidst hot weather. The grapes exhibited excellent ripeness, with high concentrations of sugar and phenolic compounds. The berries were fresh yet ripe, bursting with flavor. The abundant harvest extended the picking period, which lasted until early October, under summer-like temperatures. Despite the heat, the vintage retained its fresh, fruity character.

The wine displays a beautiful, deep, bright red color with purple highlights. Initially discreet, the nose reveals ripe fruit, reminiscent of sun-drenched blackberries. The palate is powerful and energetic, evolving into a creamy texture with flavors of blackberry jam. The finish is tannic yet aromatic, with aging expected to enhance the wine’s irresistible appeal.
