Marks and reviews
The character of an Haut-Médoc red wine
With origins dating back to the 12th century, Château La Tour Carnet is one of the oldest in the Médoc. The property takes its name from its tower, built in 1120 and arched by a moat. Vines have been planted on the estate since 1407. This Bernard Magrez property was promoted to Cru Classé in 1855.
Château La Tour Carnet 2022 is an Haut-Médoc wine from a 164-hectare vineyard located in the commune of Saint-Laurent-Médoc. The vines, which have an average age of 26 years, are planted on Gunzian gravel soils on a base of clay and limestone.
A warm, wet winter preceded a warm, dry spring despite an early frost episode. The summer was marked by scorching conditions and very little rainfall.
This Château La Tour Carnet 2022 is a blend of Merlot (59%), Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) and Cabernet Franc (1%).
