Château Les Carmes Haut Brion Grand Vin 2018

Vineyards

Pessac-Léognan, Bordeaux, France

Winemaking and Maturation

Temperature-controlled vats: 60 hl conical stainless steel, 50 hl concrete, 76 hl wood

Initial fermentation: 25 – 30 days on average

Malolactic fermentation in the barrels: Partial

Barrel maturing: 24 months: 65% in new barrels, 35% in used barrels, tuns, concrete vats and terra cotta amphorae

Noteworthy features of the vinification and/or maturing processes: All vats vinified without crushing, and partly by whole bunch fermentation. Cap punching only.

Tasting Notes

2018 avoids the extravagance of the vintage: moderately high degrees, a dense phenolic constitution with fine granularity, powerful Cabernets Sauvignons and fresh Cabernets Francs. A miraculous vintage like only Bordeaux knows how to give birth to.
