Le Clos des Carmes Haut-Brion 2012 – Pessac-Léognan

The nose is slightly more concentrated than the vintage 2011. It reveals notes of black fruits, licorice, sweet spices and a few light touches of coffee, pepper associated with a very slight vegetal note. The palate is mineral, fat and fresh. It opens/reveals slowly/gradually as tasting advance. Medium weight in the mouth. This wine expresses notes of blueberry cream, cherry and plum associated with a few sweet spices (vanilla…). The tannins are silky, rounded but still a bit young.
