Château Les Carmes-Haut-Brion:

At Chateau Les Carmes Haut-Brion, each individual vine, every step of the winemaking processes receives meticulous care. Didier Furt and his wife Caroline have recently renovated this jewel of an estate. The cellars have been enlarged. Small vats from 40 to 80 hectoliters allow separate vinification of each vineyard block. The wine matures in small oaks casks in the aging cellar built in 1987, and is then bottled at the chateau. The estate is advised by the Dean of the Faculty of Enology of Bordeaux, Yves Glories, an eminent researcher ans consulting enologist. Glories has created a technique for precise monitoring of grape skin color and tannins, allowing exact measurement of optimum ripeness and hence the choice oh the perfect harvest date. It is thus possible to adapt the vinification of each vat to accurately reflect the vineyard and vintage. Les Carmes Haut-Brion is a wine characteristic of its appellation, subtle, elegant, and well-suited for aging. Complex, aromatic, and perfectly balanced, it is the subject of increasing demand. It is also a rare wine, with only 20, 000 bottles produced each year. The progress of the last few years is evident : in expert tastings, Les Carmes Haut-Brion is consistently awarded top scores comparable with the greatest wines of the appellation. Read less

In der Nase ein zarter Fruchtansatz. Im Gaumen zeigt er deutlich intensivere Fruchkomponenten als zuvor in der Nase. Die Aromen sind ausbalanciert und die Tannine feinkörnig. Der Körper ist gut strukturiert und der Abang ist aromatisch.
