La Tour Carnet

One of the many illustrious names to adorn the stable of winemaker Bernard Magrez, La Tour Carnet in the Haut-Medoc may well be a poster-child for good value, modern Bordeaux. Rich and ripe with plenty of oak and tannic structure, this is a very polished and easy drinking wine despite it's intensity.

La Tour Carnet 2006 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (91)

A fabulous sleeper of the vintage, this estate, which has made a succession of brilliant wines under the administration of Bordeaux’s visionary Bernard Magrez, has turned out another terrific effort. A blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine exhibits a sensational smorgasbord of aromas ranging from red and black fruits to toasty oak to licorice, high quality cigar tobacco, and spice box. Flavorful and full-bodied, with rich fruit, moderate but sweet tannin, and a long, pure finish, this is a dazzling effort in 2006 that should hit its adolescent stage in about 4-5 years and last for two decades. Excellent value.

James Suckling (91-92)

A fresh and clean wine with blueberry and light spice, mushroom character. Full, very fine. Shows a delicacy and finesse.

La Tour Carnet 2018 (6x75cl)

Decanter (93)

Once again Magrez has made a very enjoyable wine at this estate. There's a ton of fruit on offer and it has been extracted liberally but with care. The construction and the architecture feel more like 2010 and 2016 than many of its peers in 2018. It's a good wine that's clearly going to age exceptionally well. It has notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice and black pepper. It has layers of complexity and enough acidity to rein in the exuberance. Note, as ever, that the bottle is the heaviest of the line up - a shame when he is doing so much work to reduce environmental impact. 40hl/ha yield. Ageing is in 33% new oak.
