This is currently one of Bordeaux's hottest properties, a 7.6 hectare vineyard planted with 39% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 21% Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Guillaume Pouthier previously worked at Chapoutier in the Rhône Valley, and regularly uses up to half whole bunch fermentation

Winemaker Notes

Les Carmes Haut Brion

Les Carmes Haut Brion

by Les Carmes Haut Brion
Jane Anson (Decanter) about the 2019 vintage: “Extremely impressive and well balanced, with fine tannins and real discretion but hidden power and depths. The 55% whole bunch fermentation has brought the alcohol down to this relatively low level for the estate’s location. This is a wine to surprise those who think Bordeaux can’t deliver understatement”
