As most of the estate of Bordeaux, 2017 has been a tough year in Domaine Les Carmels. Spring frost destroyed almost 80% of our harvest ant especially all the cabernet franc. That’s why we won’t be able to produce the cuvée Les Vendanges. That’s too bad because that’s a nice vintage coming up with a beautiful precocity in the spared plots. Despite a weak harvest, we decided not to use the frozen plots.
2017 will be a historically precocious vintage for us and we will produce our cuvée “Les Caprices” with one of our best plot of merlot “La Côte Rotie” which wasn’t totally frozen on september  12th.
