Origin: France - Haut-Medoc (4ème Grand Cru Classé)
Alcohol concentration: 13%
Château La Tour Carnet, a fine building with medieval castle, towers, moat and drawbridge, has an entire plot of vines planted on clay-like soil, almost completely replanted by the 1960s.
Now the No. 4 wine in the Haute-Médoc, Bernard Magrez has invested heavily and developed quite a few wines.
Chateau La Tour Carnet produces concentrated straight red wines, thanks to the experience of Bernard Magrez's team. First-class grand cru wine, which can be kept for 10 to 20 years.
Wine Advocate-Parker : 93/100
Possibly La Tour Carnet's best since 2001, the 2010 La Tour Carnet shows wonderful ripeness, intense ruby/purple, licorice, camphor and some toast with plenty of blackcurrant and blueberry fruit smell. Medium to full-bodied, with luscious and attractive tannins, medium acidity, well-defined parts, full-bodied and long finish. Given the moderate tannins, there could be some finish to the wine, but despite being a 2010, it seems relatively accessible. Estimated maturity period: 2018-2035.
