Château Hauts Les Hauts Conseillants

Located in Lalande de Pomerol, just across from Pomerol itself, the 10 hectare Château Les Hauts-Conseillants is owned and managed by the Bourotte family. Like some of the best soils in Pomerol, Les Hauts-Conseillants lies on a clay/gravel bed mixed with sand

Tasting Notes

Aged in 35% new oak, it is the epitome of charm. Deep damson fruits on the nose, rich and moreish on the palate with an underlying dark chocolate character. A little spice on the finish gives it a further dimension.

Food Matches

A perfect partner for roast rack of lamb served pink.
