Mod­ern Wine Magic

Bordeaux J'Adore - - Architecture -

Les Carmes Haut-brion in­vited Philippe Starck and Luc Arsène-henry to con­ceive a wine cel­lar un­like any other in the re­gion, if not the world. To­day this unique cel­lar en­joys a kind of mag­i­cal qual­ity be­cause of its dy­namic shape in con­trast to the land­scape that sur­rounds it. The Château Cheval Blanc in­vited Chris­tian de Portzam­parc to con­struct a new fer­ment­ing ‘cel­lar/work­shop’ on site and this re­mark­able build­ing lends the vine­yard a new ho­moge­nous flu­id­ity, per­fectly in keep­ing with the look and feel of the land­scape. Château Faugères, Château Barde Haut and Château Le Pin of­fer visi­tors the chance to see how the mar­riage of tra­di­tion and in­no­va­tion can be ap­plied not only to the pro­duc­tion of wine but to the ar­chi­tec­ture that de­fines it.
