Reviews and Ratings

Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Old world classic Bordeaux at a nice price point. Berries, plum and light oak on the nose. The palate is lightly rounded with medium acid and medium tannin. The wine finished with a touch of graphite balanced with oak. Medium length. A steal at LCBO for $24 (P)
In 1935, Clarence Dillon purchased Chateau Haut-Brion and created an homage to the Francophile American Clarendelle, according to the back label. This wine is aged in oak barrels. Enjoy with grilled lamb. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
