Château Les Carmes Haut Brion - Wine dinner
As an authentic walled garden vineyard in the heart of Bordeaux, Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion remained a confidential family property for a long time, producing wines of a typically classic Bordeaux style. Since his purchase of the Château in 2010, Patrice Pichet intends to turn the 6,82 hectare vineyard into a Pessac-Leognan growth of major importance.
To manage the property he has appointed a recognized talent, Guillaume Pouthier who has gained experience working for top producers in the Rhone valley, Alsace and Portugal. Guillaume Pouthier has entirely reviewed the technical installations in order to use equipment adapted to this level of ambition.
A collection of tanks adapted to each vine plot and a new set of barrels were installed in 2011. As a property developer, builder and wine enthusiast, Patrice Pichet has wanted his equipment to be housed in a building of exceptional style. He has engaged two remarkable personalities to sign the design of the new cellar : the design creator Philippe Starck and the architect Luc Arsène-Henry.
In présence of Guillaume Pouthier, oenologist.
