Beyond the Label
Silky, ripe berries, fresh edge, spicy sandalwood and smooth tannins
American financier Clarence Dillon visited Bordeaux in 1934 and fell in love with world famous Château Haut-Brion. The estate wasn’t then in peak form, but that didn’t put him off one iota. Certain it was the jewel of Bordeaux, he bought it and so started his family’s long commitment to the region and fine wine. In 1983 they purchased La Mission Haut-Brion, next door, and the family have since extended their portfolio to other areas of Bordeaux. Clarendelle is the initiative of Clarence Dillon’s great grandson, Prince Robert of Luxembourg. It’s a premium blend Bordeaux that expresses the very best of the vintage – the superb 2015. Largely Merlot, it offers rich berry fruit, with rounded tannins, and already makes very enjoyable drinking.
"Fresh nose with berries and chocolate with hints of hazelnuts. Sandalwood. Delicious finish"
