4 /5

The Château La Tour Carnet is the oldest castle of the Medoc. Belonging to Bernard Magrez today, it was the property of Eleanor, sister of Michel de Montaigne. Its current owner began a general refurbishment program, namely the winery, the vineyard but also at the castle.
The 75 hectares of La Tour Carnet stretch for South / South-West facing slopes. The vines of the vineyard is composed of 51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc 6% and 3% Petit Verdot.
The wines are aged in barrels (60% new) for 18 months.
This 2012 vintage is indeed the proof of the hard work of Bernard Magrez to change this Haut-Médoc among the greatest. Elegant and roundness, it offers a light fruity, in the right measure. This will soften with time.
Probably one of the best quality / price of the Médoc.

I opened this 2015 with a friend.
Reddish towards brown colour. I cleary noticed toasty notes. The wine was ok.
I had it with cod and potatoes.

With roast lamb fell rather mild. Me and my clients from Haut-Médoc have taste it together.
A Haut-Médoc with brown edges. Fine aromas of raisins. The Haut-Médoc tasted like wild berries.
