La Clarté de Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan 2021

2021 is not the year to stock up on 2nd labels of red wines, but the whites offer more consistency, and this is a great example. Has a clear intensity to it, with tension and grip, a slate-textured finish and fleshy but pared-back stone fruits. 45% new barrels, and lower alcohols than over the past few years, as with the whole Haut-Brion range.
