Description

 The 2017 Le C des Carmes Haut-Brion was picked from 20 September to 3 October, with 13° alcohol. It is matured in 30% new oak, 60% one-year and 10% amphora. It has a very perfumed, quite generous bouquet with wild strawberry, vanilla pod, blueberry and subtle damp clay aromas. The palate conveys a fine sense of energy on the entry. Then it delivers very edgy, almost chalky tannin that frame the dark berry fruit, hints of brown spice and a typically reduced finish that indicates this will require four or five years in bottle. - Vinous
