The second wine of this incredible estate is the 2016 La Clarte de Haut Brion Blanc (76.3% Sémillon and 23.7% Sauvignon). As with the grand vin, it has an incredible mix of vibrancy and richness as well as beautiful tart citrus, lime, white flowers, and crushed rock aromas and flavors. Fresh, focused, medium-bodied, and with bracing acidity yet terrific concentration, it too needs short-term cellaring and should keep for two decades.

Attractive chamomile, lemon-pith and lemon-grass aromas with a very composed palate that holds a sleek and flavorful, mostly citrus-fruit core and achieves great length and depth. Drink or hold.

The 2016 La Clarte de Haut-Brion is lovely. Bright and nicely chiseled, with terrific depth, the Clarte is wonderfully nuanced. Citrus and floral notes give this energetic Sémillon/Sauvignon blend terrific freshness. --... The 2016 La Clarte de Haut-Brion is lovely.
