Exceptional history of the last vineyard of Bordeaux. It was in 1584, shortly before passing from life to trepas at 101 years, that Jean de Pontac, the illustrious lord of Haut-Brion, donated to the Carmelites of Notre-Dame a mill to water surrounds pres and vineyards. For 200 years the Peres Carmes will retain the name "Haut-Brion". Then the use will gradually transform the name into "Carmes Haut-Brion". Although confiscated by the Carmelite Fathers during the revolution, the estate will continue to exist and fight for its survival. It was bought at the beginning of the 19th century by Leon Colin, wine merchant in Bordeaux, a direct ancestor of current owners, the Chantecaille-Furt family. Today Didier Furt and his wife Caroline manage this second estate since 2005 by their daughter Penelope. They renovated this jewel by enlarging the cellars and vinifying in small vats of forty to eighty hectoliters. A vineyard jewel witness of the wine history of Bordeaux for 500 years. The Chateau Les Carmes Haut-Brion, separated from the Chateau Haut-Brion by a few pasta house, is a small green area, a unique jewel in Bordeaux. The vineyard is located in the extension of the plateau of Haut-Brion. Small in size (four hectares seventy) but large in its exceptional terroir, it is completely fenced by an old stone wall that protects it from the city. The estate is at the crossroads of the three largest municipalities in the Bordeaux agglomeration: Bordeaux, Merignac and Pessac. Inside the walls, the visitor is out of time: the fountain that adorns the park dates from the fourteenth century, the Peugue stream that served as a border in the Middle Ages between Bordeaux parishes, through the park. In the center stands a magnificent castle built in the nineteenth century surrounded by one of the most beautiful parks designed by the landscape architect Fischer. Thanks to the Carmes, the city of Bordeaux can boast of owning a last vineyard, a vineyard of city. The surrounding walls and houses favor an amazing microclimate. The grapes reach a very high maturity well before the other vineyards of the region, especially as the risk of frost is lower. Thanks to its embrace composed mostly of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, Les Carmes Haut-Brion produces a fine red wine, of great elegance. Its aromatic richness and the balance of the complex substances that compose it make it a wine more and more research.
