La Tour Carnet 4ème Grand Cru Classé en 1855 Haut-Médoc
Château La Tour Carnet dates back to the 12th century, making it the oldest Château du Médoc. Its architecture is of medieval type with a tower built in 1120, surrounded by moats. He has known famous owners including the family of Michel de Montaigne, one of the greatest French philosophers, author of the Essays, and twice Mayor of Bordeaux. The vineyard of Château La Tour Carnet was established in the year 1407.
Wine Spectator - 2010 - 89/100 Bright and engaging, with open-knit raspberry, blackberry and black cherry fruit backed by notes of anise and violet. The lightly firm, plum pit-tinged finish keeps this honest, showing some latent grip.

Wine Spectator - 2014 - 88/100 Solid, delivering a core of lightly steeped red and black currant fruit liberally laced with savory and tobacco leaf notes. This has a frankly toasty frame on the finish, but the fruit pushes through. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020. 40,000 cases made.

Commentaire The 2014 La Tour Carnet was a wine that I tasted last year from bottle, so why not give it another whirl to remind readers of its quality. There is a lot going on aromatically with plenty of boisterous black cherry and raspberry fruit, maintaining that floral element that I discerned last year. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, perhaps the oak on this bottle a little more conspicuous than before, but that will be subsumed with two or three years in bottle.
