2017 Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

Les Carmes really stands out among its neighbours, a lifted, whole bunch fruit profile setting it apart entirely. It's bright and elegant, with excellent drive and energy. Strictly limited to 6 bottles per customer.

TASTING NOTES

A tight and linear red with a firm and intense, pretty center palate of blackberry and wet-earth character. Full-bodied, reserved and focused. Really compacted.
