This is one of my go to wines I purchase every year. As much as I would love to drink Carmes Haut Brion each year, the price is prohibitively high for me as it is for many. This, their second wine however, is absurdly well priced. It gives you a taste of why there is such clamour for Guillaume Pouthier's Grand Vin. Using many of the same techniques at Carmes Haut Brion itself, from a plot close to Smith Haut Laffite, this is something that I would encourage to be present in every cellar.

"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, 3.55pH."
