Clarendelle by Haut-Brion
Today, Domaine Clarence Dillon, has the unique privilege of producing five rare and exceptional estate wines of unequalled reputation as well as their second wines. Domaine Clarence Dillon’s expertise, founded on five centuries of history, is reflected in every wine produced by the estate.
In 2005, seventy years after Clarence Dillon’s arrival, his great-grandson, Prince Robert de Luxembourg, began writing a new chapter of the Dillon family’s history by establishing Clarence Dillon Wines to produce and sell the first premium brand wine in Bordeaux: “Clarendelle”.
Through the creation of Clarendelle, Clarence Dillon Wines and Domaine Clarence Dillon wish to shed a new light on the tremendous potential and savoir faire of this region, that have made it a benchmark for the entire world. With this outstanding terroir, passionate and qualified men and women, and an expertise handed down over centuries, all the necessary ingredients were there for the creation of a top-end Bordeaux brand.It is in the pure tradition of the Domaine Clarence Dillon estate wines that the oenologists at the family-owned company also elaborate Clarendelle, with the traditional Bordeaux varieties. Bringing out the finest characteristics of the vintage, skilful blending leads to high quality year after year.
The red wines come primarily from the Saint-Emilion, Haut-Médoc, and Pessac-Léognan regions (including the Domaine Clarence Dillon estates). The white wines come mainly from the Graves (including Pessac-Léognan).
