Natalie's Score: 87/100
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. A rustic, tannic Bordeaux red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Aromas of black fruit, toasty oak and dark spice. Pair with a rare steak or grilled lamb. Decant for 2 hours.
Food pairings: grilled lamb chops, bison burgers, tourtière.

Lots of CF character here. Lifted aromas of raspberry and graphite. Quite smooth and plummy with oak accents on the palate. A chocolate note late.

It’s not everyday that we have the chance to taste a Premier Grand Cru Classé. The Clarendelle 2014 is inspired by Chateau Haut-Brion and is an everyday wine that was created with the same mentality of excellence and savoir faire. Clarendelle 2014 was produced by Domaine Clarence Dillon which is a family owned society that owns prestigious Chateaux and Domains like Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion. The 2014 vintage was made using 74% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. The nose shows gentle aromas of blackcurrant, rose, leaves, caramel and oak. Elegantly, the wine reveals a medium body with a well-balanced finish. Blackcurrant, red cherry, bay leaf, coffee, a touch of vanilla and oak close this charming and well-structured Bordeaux wine. The Clarendelle 2014 will please the Bordeaux wine lover with its quality and complexity. Enjoy!
