Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion

Bordeaux | France

The Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion succeeds in combining tradition with modernity. The bold architecture blends naturally into the surroundings of its authentic and historical park, with two-hundred-year-old trees testifying to the rich history of the site. The estate is unveiled through a new entrance redesigned with spikes pointing down on an ironwork gate, connecting it to the urban environment. The cellar is a raw metal blade plunging in the terroir, like a ship floating on a body of water. This unique architectural work, designed by Philippe Starck, anchors Les Carmes Haut-Brion in the 21st century. A panoramic terrace allows visitors to admire the whole estate, surrounded by the city of Bordeaux.
