2012 Le Clarence de Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan.

41% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot.
Named in honour of Clarence Dillon, who bought the estate in the 1930s. His great grandson, Prince Robert of Luxembourg, is the current owner of this, the oldest, smallest and arguably greatest of the Bordeaux First Growths. The same meticulous care and attention lavished on the Grand Vin is in evidence here. Dark berried fruit with a savoury hint of baked earth, black olives, and sweet spice lead onto a velvet textured palate where the fruit, tannin and acidity are all perfectly pitched with great persistence of flavour on a long, flowing finish.
