Description

The typicality of a Haut-Médoc red wine signed by Bernard Magrez

The estate

With origins dating back to the 12th century, Château La Tour Carnet is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc. The property takes its name from its tower, built in 1120 and surrounded by moats. In 1407, vines were planted at the estate. Owned by Bernard Magrez, this Classified Growth of 1855 belongs to the elite wine estates of the Haut-Médoc.

The vineyard

Situated in the commune of Saint-Laurent-Médoc, the Château La Tour Carnet vineyard covers 176 hectares of vines. Planted at a high density (8 to 10,000 feet per hectare), the vines are aged 32 years on average and planted in Gunzian gravel soils upon a mostly calcareous clay base. The vineyard of Château La Tour Carnet has achieved the label of High Environmental Value Level 3.

The vinification and ageing

Harvested manually, the grapes undergo an initial sorting in the vineyard, followed by manual sorting on a vibrating table, then de-stemming and optical sorting. Cooling of the harvested fruit using a cryogenic tunnel (by spraying liquid nitrogen). Vatting by gravity. Vinification in oak vats and small cement vats. Cold pre-fermentation maceration (8 ° C). Fully manual punching downs. Alcoholic fermentation at a low temperature (28 ° C). Maceration period of 25 to 32 days. Ageing lasts 16 months in barrels, 30% of which are new oak barrels.

The blend

The Château La Tour Carnet 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (60%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (40%).
