Clarendelle, Inspired by Haut-Brion unveils its new emblem
Domaine Clarence Dillon, the family company owner of Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion and Château Quintus, is pleased to announce a distinctive new brand identity for the wines of Clarendelle, Inspired by Haut-Brion. The new logo, adorned by a crown and two majestic lions, is borrowed from the Dillon family coat of arms and provides a fitting replacement. The emblem signifies part of a story that is constantly evolving, the earliest chapters were signed by Mr Clarence Dillon at Château Haut-Brion in 1935.
Created in 2005 by Prince Robert of Luxembourg, the Clarendelle family of wines is a collection of elegant, modern and premium wines that represents the very best of the Bordeaux terroir, which includes the prominent Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion and Château Quintus.
The original logo for the Clarendelle wines, designed by the Prince on a scrap of paper, was quickly assumed by the Domaine Clarence Dillon company. As new subsidiaries were born, including the fine wine boutique, La Cave du Château, and the two Michelin-starred restaurant Le Clarence in Paris, the now emblematic logo became integrated into their identities as well.
Given the continued evolution of Clarendelle, now approaching its 17th vintage, it seems only natural to bestow the wines with its very own unique identity, within the family of Domaine Clarence Dillon.
Clarendelle Saint-Émilion 2014 (RRP £24) and Clarendelle Médoc 2014 (RRP £21) are available at Laithwaite’s Wine, Harrods, Hedonism Wines, Bibendum Wine and Avery’s of Bristol.
Note from Wine behind the label editors:
The above Saint-Émilion and Médoc wines are both rated as 3 star wines in the 11th edition of Wine behind the label. As such, at a price of £24 or £21 a bottle, they are reckoned to be reasonably priced wines for the quality according to our Value for Money Wines App. But do check the price from each supplier individually. If you can get the wines for less that £18 they would be considered value for money, if they cost more than £25, they would be considered overpriced.
