Description: Named after the medieval squire who unfailingly helped his lord to resist the French monarchy at the end of the Hundred Years War, Chateau La Tour Carnet played a major role in the revolution of Medoc Vineyard. The quality of its wines is rewarded by the entry in the classification of 1855 Grand Crus. The diversity of its soil and the constant search for perfection make this Haut-Medoc an exceptional wine. As part of this drive for quality, Bernard Magrez has already undertaken a program of restoration and renovation. Not only is its intention to raise Chateau La Tour Carnet (covering 126 hectares with 48 hectares of vines) to the level of excellence enjoyed in the glory days of its eight-century history.
Blending: • 50% Merlot • 40% Cabernet Sauvignon • 7% Cabernet Franc • 3% Petit Verdot
Tasting Note: Deep garnet red color with hints of mahogany and biscuit showing good signs of aging. Complex nose with notes of blackcurrant and plum appearing in turns followed by secondary aromas of spices like cinnamon and roasted charred wood. Forthright flavor revealing the incredible finesse of well-rounded, perfectly balanced tannin. Roasted notes and ripe fruits on the palate with a balanced, full bodied finish.
