Carmes Haut Brion 2022 Released

Today we saw the release of Carmes Haut Brion from Pessac Leognan. This wine has become a cult favourite in recent years – and is certainly one we wish we could get higher allocations of.

It is being offered by the international trade for £1,320 per 12×75 – significantly up on the 2021 wine by 39.2% – however this wine has high scores, low volumes and world wide demand that always increases in value at an alarmingly quick rate.

Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded the wine a barrel range of 96-98 points, calling the palate ‘just beautiful’ and loaded with ‘mineral-laden dark berry fruit’. He describes the 2022 Les Carmes as replete with ‘sculpted tannins’ and having a ‘seamless’ finish. In his words: ‘I am not inclined toward hyperbole, nevertheless, this is the best Les Carmes that Guillaume Pouthier has overseen’.
