Winemakers Note

Château La Tour Carnet, Grand Cru Classé in 1855 The origins of the Château go back to the 12th century, which makes it the oldest Château in the Médoc. Its architecture is of medieval type with a tower built in 1120, surrounded by a moat. It has known famous owners, including the family of Michel de Montaigne, one of the greatest French philosophers, author of the Essays, and who was twice Mayor of Bordeaux. The vineyard of Château La Tour Carnet was established there in 1409. Owned by Bernard Magrez, the terroir of Château La Tour Carnet is a true mosaic of very diverse soils, particularly suitable for Merlot. Always striving for excellence, Bernard Magrez is a forerunner in technological and agronomic research, as evidenced by the collection of 75 grape varieties planted at La Tour Carnet, in order to observe their adaptability and find a potential response to the challenges of climate change.

Thee attack is clean, precise and velvety on the palate; the balance and length of this wine, that lingers deliciously, are remarkable. Alix Combes tells you about this vintage:
