On the nose, the 2012 Clarence Haut-Brion of Chateau Haut-Brion seems restrained. On aeration, red berry notes such as black berry appear. This Second vin du Chateau Haut-Brion evolves on grilled notes. The palate is ample and strong. The tannins are marked on the mid-palate where the wine tightens. These tannins confer a beautiful persistence to this Pessac-Leognan Rouge.
