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.

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

A Haut-Médoc with brown edges. Fine aromas of raisins. The Haut-Médoc tasted like wild berries.
