Wonderful aromas of honeysuckle, light apricot and citrus with hints of lemon curd and pie crust. It’s full-bodied, tight and composed with density and agility that make it unique for a white. Fantastic persistence. Try...   Wonderful aromas of honeysuckle, light apricot and citrus with hints of lemon curd and pie crust. It’s full-bodied, tight and composed with density and agility that make it unique for a white. Fantastic persistence. Try after 2024, but already a joy to taste and drink.

Quite floral in its nature, you also find a blend of yellow citrus fruits with tropical accents and a drizzle of orange honey served up with fresh, creamy, opulent textures. You can enjoy this young, or age it a few years...   Quite floral in its nature, you also find a blend of yellow citrus fruits with tropical accents and a drizzle of orange honey served up with fresh, creamy, opulent textures.

It should keep for a decade, probably longer, although there's no need to delay gratification too much.

They have still captured a wonderfully bright and fresh feel though, with apricot richness running through the palate. It has the grip and sense of depth and concentration that's so much a signature of the whites in the portfolio. It was always going to be tough to follow the brilliant 2017 here, but this is a succulent and enjoyable wine. 45hl/ha yields for the whites this year.

Very racy, with a mix of wet stone, tangerine, dried lemon peel, tarragon and thyme notes that are very well-defined from start to finish. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now through 2027. – JM

The 2018 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is absolutely gorgeous. Bright, aromatic and so expressive, the Clarté hits all the right notes. Lemon confit, sage, dried herbs, mint and flowers grace this taut, finely-knit dry white...   The 2018 La Clarté de Haut-Brion is absolutely gorgeous. Bright, aromatic and so expressive, the Clarté hits all the right notes. Lemon confit, sage, dried herbs, mint and flowers grace this taut, finely-knit dry white. The 2018 is both supple but nervy, a balance that works so well in this vintage. In a word: terrific. -- Antonio Galloni
