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

This is an absolute belter! Deep black colour, almost opaque. Forward and intense nose brimming with black fruit aromas, impressively rich at this stage offering layers of baked plum, cherry, mocha and sweet oak. Voluptuous with a delicious streak of dark chocolate, this wine is stylish, lush with a balancing note of black olive and spice to add a seasoned note to the long finish.

Vinification

Fermented plot by plot, in small stainless and cement vats with manual pumping over and punching of the caps. Aged for 18 months in fine-grained French oak barrels (35% new)
