    2014 Pessac-Leognan Blanc, Bordeaux.

    The white Second Wine of Chateau Haut-Brion is rare and exceptional thanks to its composition; it is produced in limited quantity. The 2014 Pessac-Leognan Blanc Clarte Haut-Brion is a blend of two Second Wines from two different properties; this 2014 is 66% Sauvignon Blanc and 34% Sémillon
    The nose gives off citrusy, white fruit notes mixed with a restrained wood hint. On the palate, the 2014 Clarte Haut-Brion attack is marked by thickness and leads to freshness and crispiness on the mid-palate. The finish confirms the bold expression of the fruit.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 La Clarte de Haut-Brion Blanc has a lively bouquet with scents of lime flower, citrus fruit and freshly sliced grapefruit, the oak neatly integrated (39% new oak used this year). The palate is well balanced with a pleasant fatness on the entry, slightly honeyed with veins of lemongrass and ginger struck through the finish. Sure, it lacks a little persistence, but its sheer drinkability cannot be denied.
