THE 2021 VINTAGE

The 2021 vintage was shaped by the whims of nature. Cold spells during spring set the tone, followed by consistently high rainfall throughout the growth cycle, resulting in an unprecedented threat of vine diseases. The weather warmed up somewhat in late spring, with temperatures conducive to good ripening.
The broadly “cool” summer yielded grapes with promising acidity levels, making for attractive, fruity and aromatic wines.
These distinctive conditions were propitious to a great vintage for the whites, with complex, aromatic wines underpinned by wonderful freshness and reasonable alcohol levels.

 

Tasting Notes

Brilliant, intense yellow colour.
The complex nose reveals Sauvignon Blanc’s plethora of aromas, ranging from boxwood to tropical fruit and an array of citrus notes. The Muscadelle wines are a beautiful golden colour, contributing hints of rose and lychee to the final blend.
Starts out delicious, round and rich on the palate, balanced out by wonderful minerality. The overall impression is of a fruity, powerful wine with notes of lemon and fresh pineapple, enhanced by a rich, velvety mouthfeel and a slightly toasty, silky texture.
The long aftertaste showcases the complexity of this wine, with ripe fruit notes following through to the finish.
These modern wines boast high acidity, conferring good tension and length on the palate.
All in all, a gourmet, refined wine with a great deal of elegance.

THE 2020 VINTAGE

2020 produced an early-ripening, well-balanced vintage.
After a mild winter, the weather began to change, with heavy rainfall providing the necessary water reserves to support the vines over the summer.
Bud break occurred late February before the sun returned in April and May, conducive to early, even flowering.
Hot, dry conditions settled in from late June onwards but gave way to storms in mid-August. Véraison (colour change) took place mid-July under this ideal spell of weather. The grapes reached optimum ripeness thanks to their very healthy state, up until picking.
Clay-limestone slopes overlooking the Dordogne River were once again the primary source for this wine. After the harvest, the Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle grapes underwent skin-contact maceration, followed by slow, gentle pressing. The juice was fermented after cold settling at low temperature in stainless-steel vats. The wines were then aged on fine lees until bottling.

 

Tasting Notes

Beautiful, intense, almost golden colour.
The initial impression on the nose is very aromatic and powerful with notes of citrus, orange blossom and acacia, mingled with buttery nuances.
Starts out delicious, round and rich with wonderful minerality. Fruity flavours come to the fore (pineapple and grapefruit), enhanced by a rich, velvety mouthfeel and silky texture.
The incredibly long aftertaste showcases the complexity of this wine, with ripe fruit notes following through to the finish. The overall impression is of a delicious,
refined wine with a great deal of elegance.

THE 2019 VINTAGE

Every vintage has its own surprises, with 2019 being remembered as a year full of contrasts in the Bordeaux region.
Flowering was spread out, taking place in cool, wet conditions, before a heatwave arrived.
The radical change in the weather conditions resulted in July being the hottest month of the decade.
Several much-welcomed rainstorms in late July paved the way for véraison, or colour change, which took place evenly, thanks to the efforts of winegrowers during the month of August.
For several years, the weather conditions in late summer have produced very fine vintages in Bordeaux, made from exceptionally healthy grapes.
This year looks set to follow this trend, joining the ranks of the finest vintages ending in “9”!

 

Tasting Notes

This wine is a brilliant golden-yellow colour. The initial impression on the nose is of white flower (acacia) aromas, alongside brioche and butter overtones.
Starts out delicious, round and rich with beautiful minerality.
Notes of beeswax and honey follow through to the palate, underpinned by orange zest nuances, and enhanced by a rich, velvety mouth-feel and silky texture.
The incredibly long aftertaste is reminiscent of full-bodied flavours.
The overall impression is of a delicious and refined wine with a great deal of elegance.

THE 2018 VINTAGE

A rainy winter and spring enabled the soil to store up significant water reserves. Fortunately, the humid weather did not upset flowering. Summertime marked the arrival of hot days and cool nights, which dried out the soil, kept the vines healthy, and provided ideal sun exposure conducive to producing perfectly ripe grapes until the harvest.

 

Tasting Notes

Sauvignon Blanc is particularly expressive with fresh fruit and citrus aromas. Sémillon accounts for a wine’s voluptuousness on the palate, whereas Muscadelle contributes delightful hints of ripe fruit. Brilliant pale-yellow colour. The blend displays minerality, richness, and complexity. This wine unveils quince and ripe pear aromas. Sémillon and Muscadelle are especially assertive this year, providing attractive notes of passion fruit and lychee. The lively bouquet follows through to the palate with fresh menthol overtones. This wine is elegant, full-bodied, and long-lasting with hints of spice and liquorice.

THE 2017 VINTAGE

The weather was ideal starting in the month of May, and was very favourable to vine growth. Nature even made up for the delay caused by frost that occurred in late April.
The warm, sunny summer was perfect for ripening.
The harvest ended up being very early and the resulting white wines are superb – not only beautifully ripe, but also very fresh with plenty of volume.

 

Tasting notes

Sauvignon Blanc is particularly expressive, with aromas of fresh fruit and citrus, while Sémillon and Muscadelle are especially assertive this year, providing attractive aromas of apricot and lychee.

THE 2016 VINTAGE

The weather was very unusual this year due to 3 whole months without rain during the summer!
It did, however, rain abundantly until mid-June, with about 750 mm of precipitation, i.e. equivalent to the annual amount of an entire dry year in Bordeaux. Flowering went very well and beautiful weather set in during the last week of June and lasted until late August – an exceedingly rare phenomenon. Much needed rain finally arrived in September, giving a boost to ripening. The harvest took place during ideal weather.

 

Tasting notes

Pale crystal-clear colour. The superb bouquet displays beautiful freshness thanks to Sauvignon Blanc grapes, which were particularly aromatic in 2016.
The nose features attractive floral aromas (rose petal), as well as fruity nuances ranging from tropical fruit such as pineapple to white peach. The rich, spicy Sémillon and Muscadelle grapes have contributed to making the blend both mineral and full-bodied. This well-balanced wine has a fresh menthol aftertaste.
This 2016 white Clarendelle is delightfully mineral and fruity!

THE 2015 VINTAGE

2015 proved to be the hottest, sunniest year in Bordeaux, ever since records have been kept. A long, very hot and dry period was propitious to excellent flowering. This weather lasted until August, when rain finally arrived.
Showers fortunately alternated with sunshine in September, providing ideal weather at the end of ripening. The grapes were in perfect condition, with thick skins and good pH.

 

Tasting notes

Beautiful golden-yellow colour with green highlights. The wine is round, rich, and luscious on the palate. The bouquet features aromas often found in sweet white wines, with hints of apricot, white peaches, and grapefruit.
The wine shows great minerality along with fresh, powerful fruit flavours, as well as the concentration and structure of a great white wine.

THE 2014 VINTAGE

Fine spring weather was conducive to a good start to the growing season.
The 2014 vintage benefited from a remarkable Indian summer and a dazzling, dry and sunny month of September, with temperatures close to 30°C. This superb weather, with cool night-time temperatures, enabled the grapes to ripen beautifully, and they were picked in excellent conditions.
The fruit displayed good sugar content, fine acidity, and a great potential.

 

Tasting notes

The wine has a beautiful pale yellow colour. It is very concentrated, round, and rich. It is also wonderfully vivacious on the palate, with mineral overtones.

THE 2013 VINTAGE

2013: a «year of the winemaker» calling for technical expertise. It is worth noting that such vintages often produce surprisingly good white wines. This is very true of 2013 Clarendelle, which is remarkably fresh and fruity.

 

Tasting notes

After quick fermentation, Sauvignon Blanc displays intense aromas of citrus and blood orange, whereas Semillon and Muscadelle show floral (rose) and fruity (white peach) overtones.

THE 2012 VINTAGE

The first buds appeared in the month of April, which was particularly cold and wet. Fortunately, the very welcome sunshine returned in August and September, and the grapes were able to ripen normally. Thanks to this fine weather in late summer, the harvest went well and the grapes destined to make dry white wines were picked in early September, before the rain.
The particularly low yields accounted for remarkable quality.

 

Tasting notes

Beautiful pale yellow colour. Very rich and round on the palate with mineral overtones.
After fairly quick fermentation, the Sauvignon Blanc expressed intense tropical fruit and citrus (grapefruit) aromas, whereas the Sémillon and Muscadelle were more floral, with rose nuances.
Ageing on the lees toned down the acidity and gave a certain richness and length to the wine, while maintaining freshness.
The balance is perfect, with a great deal of finesse and elegance.
A wonderful vintage for dry white Bordeaux!

THE 2011 VINTAGE

The 2011 vintage was atypical. Spring was incredibly hot and dry, whereas the month of July was the wettest in thirty years. August was normal and September started out rainy, but was abnormally warm thereafter.
This resulted in an impressively early harvest for the white wines. Most grapes were picked in late August.
Clay-limestone slopes in the Entre-Deux-Mers region overlooking the Dordogne River were once again the primary source for this wine.

 

Tasting notes

Beautiful pale yellow colour with beautiful freshness and a delicious flavour.
The nose is tremendously expressive with hints of tropical fruit (pineapple) grapefruit, melon, and white peaches.
The balance is perfect, with moderate alcohol that maintains the tangy freshness.
The wines are concentrated, full-bodied, and have a fine long aftertaste.

THE 2010 VINTAGE

Bud break in 2010 was later than usual because winter was cold and the months of April and May were also very cool. The growing season got of to a fairly balanced, but slow start compared to an average year with a little coulure (shot berries) during flowering. This naturally concentrated the grapes and created good, even quality.
Little green harvesting was done because summer was hot and dry and thankfully without any vine diseases. Autumn was also magnificent, paving the way for cool, optimum ripening.

 

Tasting notes

2010 Clarendelle Blanc is very rich, with fine aromas and good acidity.
It has a pale yellow colour and wonderful aromatic freshness from both Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes.
The bouquet has intense grapefruit and acacia blossom aromas.
The wine is tremendously suave on the palate with plenty of character as well as crunchy overtones of ripe peaches and apricots. It also has attractive mineral characteristics although its main virtue is its fruity intensity.
The aftertaste is very long and the wine is altogether concentrated, well-structured, and tasty.

THE 2009 VINTAGE

Thanks to a beautiful summer and magnificent weather during the harvest, the 2009 vintage almost perfectly met the criteria for a great vintage in Bordeaux. Early flowering and fruit-set at the beginning of June were accompanied by hot, sunny, and relatively dry weather. Véraison (colour change) was also early. The grapes ripened completely thanks to warm temperatures in August and September. The exceptionally dry weather during the harvest was everything a winegrower could wish for.
The month of August 2009 was hotter than the three previous years, but not excessively so. Therefore, Sauvignon Blanc retained good acidity and aromatics whereas Sémillon developed outstanding power and complexity.

 

Tasting notes

Brilliant yellow colour, and optimum ripeness produced citrus and honey aromas reminiscent of certain Sauternes.
Altogether exquisite bouquet with hints of white flowers.
The Sauvignon Blanc in the blend has maintained freshness and minerality on the palate. Full-bodied and delicious with a beautiful, long aftertaste.

THE 2007 VINTAGE

Intensive mechanical as well as labor-intensive operations such as leaf thinning and green harvesting were needed in order to achieve optimum results.
Fortunately, the weather was warm and sunny when harvesting started.
2007 is now recognized as an outstanding vintage for dry white Bordeaux wines. The cool summer weather locked in the aromas and maintained a good acidity. Clarendelle Blanc is perfect illustration of the typical characteristics of the vintage.
The superb quality of the Domaine’s wines inspired us to be very selective and demanding during the blending process to put forward the harmony between freshness and fruit..

 

Tasting notes

Clarendelle Blanc is a beautiful golden-yellow color. Elegant and full-boded, it is strongly marked by Sémillon from the Graves. The wine has aromas of beeswax and honey, as well as a natural richness that does not preclude freshness.
The Sauvignon Blanc part of the blend contributes crispness as well as aromas of box hedge, lemon, and menthol.
Ripe Muscadelle adds floral notes along with hints of candied orange and fresh Muscat grapes.
A small proportion (10%) of the blend is barrel-aged. This complements the fresh fruit and is extremely attractive.

THE 2006 VINTAGE

2006 was an unusual year, with very high temperatures in July and September, a cool month of August, and fairly heavy rain in mid-September. This was one of the hottest vintages in the past decade.
Alternating wet and very hot periods meant that the harvest was very spread out, lasting nearly two months!
The results were quite good, and this was once again a vintage in which the experience and know-how of individual winegrowers made all the difference. Those who practiced leaf thinning and bunch thinning were very successful.
The Sémillon and Muscadelle grapes from the southern Graves ripened slowly, but fully, producing wines with beautiful citrus aromas and a very smooth flavor.

 

Tasting notes

Clarendelle Blanc is fruity, fresh, and very aromatic, with an elegant mineral quality. Featuring hints of ripe peaches and a touch of menthol, the attractive aftertaste lasts a long time.
