  • What the experts say...

    "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it gives notes of kirsch, black raspberries and black plums with touches of cassis, violets, chocolate box and pencil shavings. The palate is medium-bodied, firm, grainy and lively with loads of layers and a long, well-poised finish." , Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, Novembre 2018

    Cuvée presentation

    The vines in this little four hectare vineyard are an average of 30 years old and produce a wine with rich, dense, harmonious flavours. Very pleasant, this is an elegant wine with a beautiful dark ruby colour. The palate is flamboyant and round.

    Information about domain Château les Carmes Haut-Brion

    Château les Carmes Haut Brion is located, like its neighbours, Châteaux Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion, on Graves' famous plateau, in Pessac, as you leave Bordeaux to the south-west. From 1584 to 1789 it was owned by Carmelite monks, who established the wine's reputation. During the French Revolution it was declared a national asset and sold at auction. For more than a hundred years it was owned by the Chantecaille family. Illustrated by the inauguration of its new cellar signed by Starck, Les Carmes Haut Brion clearly shows its ambition since it was bought in 2010 by Patrice Pichet and his wife Diane. It is perhaps the most dynamic property of Pessac-Léognan in recent years. This unclassified growth is totally unusual, particularly because of its share of Cabernet Franc in its blend (45%). The wine is now sublime and ripe. A growth to follow very closely by the amateurs.
