Critics’ scores 

Neal Martin (Vinous) gave it a score of 90-92 thought that it maybe ‘lacks a bit of persistence’ but was a ‘fine’ second wine.  

Martin’s fellow critic at Vinous, Antonio Galloni called it, ‘super-expressive’, and likewise scored it 90-92. William Kelley (Wine Advocate) was in agreement, rating it 91-93 and calling it ‘one of the finest second wines in this vintage’. 

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Independent), scored it 87-89 points. 

Fair Value analysis 

Le Clarence Haut-Brion has a stronger correlation with age rather than critic score according to Liv-ex’s Fair Value methodology 

Buyers might consider the vintages between 2016 and 2019, which are all available for a discount to today’s release and have several years in bottle already. 

As the bar chart above shows, the 2016, 2018 and 2019 all have better scores than the 2021 as well.
