Critic reviews
"Beautiful, Burgundian-like aromas of burning embers, roasted Provencal herbs, black currants and sweet cherries and raspberries emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant 2009 Pessac-Leognan. Medium to full-bodied and seductive with sweet tannins as well as a surprisingly evolved, precocious personality (even for a 2009), it will offer delicious drinking over the next 15+ years. This is another wine in which I noticed subtle bottle variation."
Robert Parker, December 2011

"The 2009 Les Carmes Haut-Brion offer ample red cherry and crushed strawberry on the nose, touches of brown spice and undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a little dry in the middle but with more flesh on the finish. It is still not a convincing showing compared to previous bottles and I will seek to revisit this in the future. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting."
Neal Martin, February 2019

"Medium ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of black raspberry, licorice, wild herbs and minerals. Sweet, lush and densely packed, with concentrated black cherry and black raspberry flavors offering considerable early appeal. Finishes with rising fruit and big, ripe tannins. This is superb already but should evolve positively for 10 to 12 years."
Stephen Tanzer, July 2012
