Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion 2006

2006 was marked by the beginning of September having broken records of sunshine, an exceptional sweetness that, accompanying the maturity of the grape berries to perfection, allowed the property of the exemplary grape harvests
Combining the merlot qualities of a remarkable intensity greater than the already unreal 2005, and Cabernets francs and subtle sauvignons with incomparable aromatic freshness
Thanks to the small size of our vineyard and its situation we harvested very early, this to our advantage because it allowed to pass "between the drops"
Indeed the rain settled from September 20, the day the property finished
The grapes we harvested were very healthy and well walled, with important records of Merlot and early harvest dates, the 2006 vintage was a great success
He gave a wine of great elegance but also a tannic structure able to evolve a great wine of guard
Finally, this vintage, presents a very complex aromatic game (black cherry, raspberry, spices, cedar...) that will seduce a lot and will compete without problem with our 2005.

It was served at a wedding.
At sight, it offered an intense cherry colour. This Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion with its raspberry aromas might be considered as delicacy. It has a mellow taste of chocolate pudding.
The 2015 was more entertaining than the stew we had paired it with.

I thought the Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion would be perfect for a romantic evening.
The colour was between red and brown. When you smell it you can feel different aromas such as licorice, violet, .... Very light and complex.
A accompanying us from starters to dessert.
