COMMENTARY: As a wine taster, my journey to find the best wines of any given category can be long and winding. Wines labeled Bordeaux are incredibly numerous making a search for them difficult. The 2014 Clarendelle by Haut-Brion was almost a no-brainer; this wine is solid. TASTING NOTES: Make no mistake with this wine, this is a Bordeaux rouge. Its black fruit, slight earthiness, and a hint of leather point to this AOC's direction. Put a juicy ribeye on the grill and enjoy. (Tasted: May 11, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Love the aromas of plums and brambleberries. Medium body, soft and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Deliciously soft and fresh. A solid Bordeaux for the money. Drink now.

In Chateau Haut-Brion, Clarence Dillon found not only the charm of an elegant and fabled estate, but also the opportunity of a lifetime. He discovered a tarnished jewel. This estate had sparkled for centuries prior to these difficult times and yet in 1934, Mr. Gibert, the current owner, had not been successful in his bid to give the estate away to the town of Bordeaux because of the high maintenance costs and meager returns.

The estate needed someone of passion and means to allow it to weather the storm. Clarence Dillon immediately entered into negotiations to acquire the estate and requested that his Paris office continue these on his departure by ship to the United States. On board the ship during the crossing he received a telegram which read "You may acquire Chateau Haut-Brion if we act fast." His two word answer was "Act Fast!" This short and decisive response was the beginning of a long family commitment to this estate and to the wines of Bordeaux.

Clarendelle's name thus pays homage to the ancestor who brought the family to this region. In creating Clarendelle the team from Clarence Dillon Wines and their colleagues at Domaine Clarence Dillon, wish to discover and extract the best from the enormous potential and savoir-faire that this region and terroir provide. They already benefit from centuries of acquired knowledge and will aim to produce wines worthy and representative of their heritage and provenance.

In most of France, wines are named by their place of origin and not by the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). Just like a red Burgundy is by law, always made of Pinot noir, a red Bordeaux is a blended wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Depending on the laws of the village from which the grapes come, the conditions of the vintage and decisions of the winemaker, the blend can be further supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and in rare cases, Carmenere. So popular and repeated has this mix of grape varieties become worldwide, that the term, Bordeaux Blend, refers to a wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
