Les Vendanges 2014
Wine Enthusiast
88/100

“This is an attractive, ripe and fruity wine made from Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines. With soft tannins, it is juicy and crisp. There is a tight edge that will soften to produce a generous wine. Yorick and Sophie Lavaud’s 13 acres are Agrocert-certified organic. Drink from 2019.”

“While it is closed and tough at present, this is definitely a wine with a future. The hand-harvested 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc blend has both firm tannins and the promise of ripe fruits, black berries and a rich, opulent character. Spice and new wood (one-third new French oak) are balanced by the fruits and they are brought together by the acidity at the end. Sophie Lavaud, who has owned the 13-acre estate since 2010, is in the process of getting organic certification.”

” Intense wine which develops cacao and black cherry aromas. The mouth is crispy, eenergetic with a nice texture. The liquorice end is gorgeous.”

“Le Domaine des Carmels 2011 présente une structure solide, dominée par des notes de prunes noires, de groseilles et fruits noirs macérés, épicée de notes boisées (tabac, cèdre grillé). Une touche enveloppante allonge la finale. A boire dès maintenant jusqu’à 2015”
