Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is spicy, “warm” and very “Cabernet Franc”. It reveals a few notes of black fruit combined with floral notes (iris, violet) and a small oaky notes. The palate is balanced, aromatic, powerful, round, harmonious, silky, gourmand and offers a nice texture and a small  and elegant tannic frame that leads the tasting. In the mouth it expresses notes of fruit cream, raspberry, cherry, fresh fruit and slight notes of blackberry associated with a small note of liquorice, a few elegant/harmonious woody notes and a small note of vanilla. The tannins are elegant. A beautiful wine.
