• Domaine: Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion
• A.O.C.: Pessac-Léognan
• Classification: Grand Vin de Graves, Bordeaux

This is one of the most unique château in Bordeaux today.  The vineyard is situated inside the boundary of the city of Bordeaux.  It used to be part of Château Haut-Brion, until the grand chateau's then owner deeded the property to the Carmelites. During the French Revolution, the church was stripped of the property which was resold to new owners of the bourgeoise class. Only Les Carmes in the name still reminds one of its once church ownership.  (Below, Philippe Starck designed new cellar for Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion.)

Tasting Notes

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Les Carmes Haut-Brion is a little reticent to begin, opening up to fragrant notes of potpourri and oolong tea over a core of crushed red and black currants plus hints of violets, dark chocolate and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied, it has an ambitious palate with firm, grainy tannins slightly masking the elegant fruit, finishing with good length though just a tad chewy." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2018, Issue 236), Rating: 91-93+
