Les Carmes Haut-Brion is clearly one of the most successful red wines of the vintage in 2021. True to form, the integration of tannins and aromatic lift is exceptional. The wine has an impressive deep purple colour. The compact, floral, spice and herbal aromas need coaxing from the glass, but there is plenty there waiting to unfurl. With 40% whole-bunch fermentation used, the aromatics are complex but don’t veer too close to the herbal side and this aromatic flair integrates beautifully with the primary fruit. The clarity of fruit of the palate is impressive with fresh blackcurrant, blackberry and black cherry. The tannins are beautifully layered and there is plenty of flesh on the bones with plush fleshy fruit filling the mid-palate and a long finish. 40% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
