Bernard Magrez's La Tour Carnet is terrific. Dark cherry, smoke, licorice, French oak, and tobacco give the 2015 its brooding personality. In this vintage, La Tour Carnet is a bit restrained, and yet all the elements come together nicely. One of Bordeaux's hidden gems, La Tour Carnet ages beautifully and delivers serious quality for the money. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2018)

Vintage 2003 - The complex smell is a clear benefit of this wine. Pencil shaving, cherries, plums as well as chocolate. Leather also. One could persist only smelling the wine, on the tongue it has quailities as well. A clearly sweet touch - 2003 is rich! - with red fruit, good acidity. It made me very happy. Partnered it with a rumpsteak and mushrooms.

Deep ruby
Slight olive aroma.
Black cherry, prune, fig --RIPE
Grippy tannins all around with acid keeping in check. Round mouthfeel- stronger than the other Bordeauxs in the flight but same placement and feeling.
Black cherry/plum retro.
Needs food.
