Literally situated within the town of Bordeaux (and prestigious Pessac Léognan) the high walls have protected the estate from intruders for over 500 years.
Now with an influx of capital, a brand new winery, and no expenses spared pursuit of perfection, the estate wines are some of the most sought after beyond the typical first growths. Employing winemaker, Stéphane Derenoncourt, certainly hasn’t hurt the project’s reputation either.
In a vintage that was once considered a sleeper (no more!) – the 2019 Le C des Carmes Haut Brion is a steal. I’ve already spoken at length about the 2019s, how sandwiched between the 2018s and the 2020s, they were initially dismissed by critics who are now changing their tunes once they’ve tasted them in bottle.

96 Points, Decanter
Beautiful fragrance to the nose, perfumed and delicate yet so expressive, nothing out of balance with cherries and violets bursting out of the glass. Gorgeous smooth mouthfeel with some milk chocolate dusting on the fruit, tannins are delicate and softly mouth filling with a lovely salinity to the palate – creamy and unctuous but at the same time there’s lots of acidity. This has a verticality to it, layered but with an aerial quality too, the flavours just glide across the palate with lift on the finish – so satisfying and drinkable. Just a glorious, shining, bright, velvety, succulent glass of wine. Pure elegance. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot
