Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion

Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion

With its 5-century-old vineyard, Château Carmes Haut Brion is a must in the Pessac-Léognan appellation.

It was in 1584 that the Catholic monks of the Grands Carmes order - who take their name from Mont Carmel, literally "God's Vineyard" - were offered land by the lord of the Haut Brion house, Jean de Potensac.

At that time, Domaine comprised only meadows, a few vines and a mill located on the Peugue river. It was only 50 years later that the monks decided to expand their vineyard by purchasing plots belonging to Haut Brion. For two centuries, they produced one of the region's most famous wines, while keeping the name Haut Brion, which became Carmes Haut Brion by custom.

Confiscated in 1791 during the French Revolution, it became Bien National and was only bought back a century later by wine merchant Léon Colin, illustrious ancestor of the Chantecaille family. The latter then had the Château we know today built and the park landscaped.

In 2010, Château was bought by Patrice Pichet, a big name in real estate and a long-time lover of the property. Anxious to do his utmost to bring Domaine to its apogee, he will have a new winery built and the vineyard redeveloped, putting oenologists Guillaume Pouthier and Stéphane Derenoncourt in charge.

Description Château les Carmes Haut-Brion 2015.

Purple color.

On the palate as on the nose: roundness and power on candied yellow-fleshed fruits such as peach or vine nectarine. Beautiful presences of blackberry jelly, quince, black cherry and blackcurrant finishing on a pronounced leather and vanilla finely oaked.

A wine for aging over 20 to 25 years, in cellar, bottle lying protected from light and noise, top of capsule removed to let the wine breathe through the cork for optimal aging in hygrometry around 70%.
