Clarendelle Medoc, Inspired by Haut-Brion, is a delicate and elegant red wine. Like the great Medocs, often quite tannic when young, it becomes more balanced with age. Clarendelle Medoc, Inspired by Haut-Brion, is a subtle blend of two traditional grape varieties from Bordeaux: Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. We find in this wine all the complexity and character of its terroir.

The Indian summer led to the optimum ripeness of the Cabernets, whose proportion forms the backbone of this wine and confers pronounced spicy notes. A deeply-coloured wine with good concentration and black fruit aromas of blackberry and blueberry. Oaky and fruity flavours come to the fore, accompanied by a minty freshness and spicy and liquorice notes, which add harmony and balance. The wine starts out smooth, becoming increasingly intense yet underpinned by a delicate tannic structure. All in all, a very elegant, full-bodied and powerful wine.

85 % Merlot
14 % Cabernet Sauvignon
1 % Petit Verdot
