2016 Clarendelle Pessac-Léognan
Winemaker Notes:The nose is reminiscent of its appellation, displaying notes of red fruit, blackcurrant, liquorice, black cherry and toast. Fine hints of forest floor also come to the fore. Starts out smooth, elegant and rich on the palate with plenty of freshness. The smooth, silky texture is underpinned by beautiful acidity and firm, finely-grained tannin. Fruity flavours fill out beautifully on the palate, accompanied by toasty overtones and hints of vanilla. A superbly well-balanced wine, paving the way for a deliciously long and fruity finish.
This Clarendelle Pessac-Leognan Reserve draws its inspiration from the quality, elegance and harmony of the wines produced by Domaine Clarence Dillon. It is especially well balanced and reflects the excellence and tradition of its heritage. Thanks to a skillful blend of four traditional Bordeaux grape varietals, Clarendelle Pessac-Leognan is a wine of character with a subtle structure.
Wine Enthusiast - "This is a confident wine from a team that makes two of the top Pessac-Léognan wines. It comes partly from the Haut-Brion vineyard, giving classic tannins and juicy black fruits. Good acidity completes this balanced wine. Drink now. "
