2012 Pessac-Leognan Rouge Second vin du Chateau Haut-Brion from Bordeaux.

On the nose, the 2012 Clarence Haut-Brion of Chateau Haut-Brion seems restrained. On aeration, red berry notes such as black berry appear. This Second vin du Chateau Haut-Brion evolves on grilled notes. The palate is ample and strong. The tannins are marked on the mid-palate where the wine tightens. These tannins confer a beautiful persistence to this Pessac-Leognan Rouge

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A wonderfully expansive, velvety textured, rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, are super and very impressive in the 2012 Le Clarence de Haut Brion. This is far higher quality than what most people would consider a second wine, even when coming from a first-growth chateau. Mulberry, spice box and expansive, rich flavors backed up by velvety tannins characterize this medium to full-bodied beautiful wine to drink now and over the next 15-20 years. Bravo.
