Tasting Notes:
  • Nose : is spicy, “warm” and very “Cabernet Franc”. It reveals a few notes of black fruit combined with floral notes (iris, violet) and a small oaky notes.
  • Palate : is balanced, aromatic, powerful, round, harmonious, silky, gourmand and offers a nice texture and a small  and elegant tannic frame that leads the tasting.
  • Finish : The wine had a long finish of black currant, chocolate, and herbs.

Description

Château les Carmes Haut Brion Pessac Léognan 2012

Château les Carmes Haut Brion Pessac Léognan 2012. This estate has been under new ownership since 2010 and the 2012 is a great success story.  The fruit shows luscious redcurrants and the overall style is really soft and attractive. It is the finish, however, where the wine really shows off a wonderful sapidité (a French term meaning an almost salty, mineral savouriness). The château’s director, Guillaume Pouthier, puts this down to using ripe stalks in the blend, a difficult method frequently used in Burgundy but very rarely seen in Bordeaux. This 2012 is very much a success.
