Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion

Address: 197 Avenue Jean Cordier, 33600 Pessac
Tel: 05 56 93 23 40  Fax: 05 56 93 10 71
Geo-coordinates:  Latitude: 44:49:13N (44.82024)    Longitude: -0:36:38W (-0.61068) 

A neighbour of Château Haut-Brion, and one that merits far more attention than it often receives, there are just 4.5ha of vines at this small but perfectly formed estate, run by Didier and Caroline Furt with Stephane Derenoncourt as consultant. The 19th century château has been recently renovated, and there’s a pretty park outside that you can walk in, and for garden buffs was designed by celebrated landscaper Fischer.

Useful information: Free tour and tasting. Open Monday to Friday from 08.00-12.00 and 14.00-17.00, but please make an appointment first. Wines can be bought direct (although several vintages are completely sold out).
