La Clareté de Haut-Brion 2017 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is aromatic, gourmand, elegant and offers a beautiful definition as well as a fine fleshiness. It reveals notes of white fruits (pear, nectarine/peach) and fine touches of citrus, racy minerality associated with subtle hints of zest as well as discreet hints of fresh almond. The palate is well-balanced, elegant, full, precise and offers a very beautiful acid frame, a beautiful minerality, tension, an acidulous fruit, a very beautiful freshness, tension, vivacity as well as a fine unctuosity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe apple, ripe vine peach and more slightly ripe mandarin associated with fine touches of pineapple, ripe citrus (lemon, mandarin) as well as fine hints of exotic fruits (quenette, passion fruit), almond and an imperceptible hint of toasted (in the background). Gourmandize and suavity on the finish. There is a very discreet hint of toasted on the aftertaste.
