External Reviews for La Clarte de Haut-Brion Graves Blanc
La Mission Haut Brion is produced from a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon 37% Merlot and a dollop of Cabernet Franc. The wine reached 15.1% natural alcohol with pH levels of 3.67. This picture is very different than what we saw in 2009 which was made from equal parts Merlot and cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. 2010 is slightly higher in alcohol as the 2009 reached 14.7. Tasters who go by the numbers might have problems with the wine but there was no sensation of heat. Everything is in balance. This is a contender for the highest concentration of Cabernet Sauvignon in the history of La Mission Haut Brion. This is due to a combination of the perfect levels of ripeness reached in the Cabernet Sauvignon and the draught plagued Merlot which had problems ripening correctly. . 2010 La Mission Haut Brion explodes with earth minerals cassis burning embers truffle and blackberry scents.

Shows good structure with a graphite edge running from start to finish. This is accessible now featuring pure cassis boysenberry and blackberry fruit displaying lovely flickers of spice and ember on the finish. Drink now through 2022. -JM Wine Spectator.
Attractive spicy nose with coffee and chocolate. Some juniper and black pepper. Blueberries and dark cherries. Vibrant and smooth on the palate with good fruit and fine soft tannins. Smooth long finish. Second wine of Haut-Bailly. Drink after 2015. James Suckling.
Intense and engaging. Despite showing lots of heft and tarry grip the singed apple wood and alder notes are well-defined in this red accentuating a core of roasted fig blackberry coulis and macerated red and black currant fruit. The long bramble-edged finish sports showy ganache and Lapsang souchong tea notes while the structure refuses to yield until everything has finally played out. Muscular and vivacious. Best from 2019 through 2040. -JM Wine Spectator.
62% cabernet sauvignon 37% merlot and 1% cabernet franc. It is aged for 18-22 months in new oak. From 27 hectares of gravelly clay soil. Ten percent less production than 2009. This looms much larger than the second wine with a nose full of spice black tea and dried tobacco. Pure power on the palate this is dense but still somehow weightless with tannins packed very tight. Flavors of licorice black cherry truffle and chocolate abound on the palate. The freshness and density balances the 1
