This red wine conveys balance and elegance rather than jammy concentration. The subtle character and structure of Clarendelle Bordeaux Red come from its inspired blend of three traditional varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. By blending the quality and characteristics of each varietal, the Domaine Clarence Dillon oenologists and the Clarence Dillon Wines team produce perfectly harmonious wines.

All of these Clarendelle releases come from the genius at Haut Brion and are ideal for near-term drinking. While I wasn't able to get the price, I'm sure the 2016 Clarendelle Bordeaux is going to represent a great value. Based on 84% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc, it offers a balanced, pretty, medium-bodied style as well as loads of black cherry fruit, cedary herbs, graphite, and subtle floral overtones. Buy a case and drink it over the coming decade.

The 2016 Clarendelle is a very pretty, entry-level wine from Clarence Dillon's Clarendelle label. Dark cherry, mocha, spice are all laced throughout. Expressive floral notes add a closing touch of freshness to round things out. A gracious, everyday wine, the 2016 is terriffc.

This softly textured wine has attractive tannins that are fully integrated. Its texture reflects the vintage, with its ripe acidity and touch of freshness. This open, fruity wine is ready to drink now.

The 2016 Clarendelle is composed of 84% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it gives up youthful notions of fresh red and black plums, mulberries and baking spices plus wafts of stewed tea and bay leaves. Medium-bodied, refreshing and vibrant in the mouth, the palate has a pleasant chewiness to the texture and finishes with an herbal lift.
