2014 Chateau La Tour Carnet Haut Medoc

2014 Chateau La Tour Carnet Haut Medoc

Profoundly beautiful in color. The nose is very expressive, developing aromas of black fruits, pepper, white tobacco and aromatic herbs (thyme, rosemary). The mouth is ample and smooth, evolving into a dense and balanced structure. The finish is long and persistent with remarkable tannins, a sign of remarkable quality and mature fruit. The uniqueness of the terroir of Saint-Laurent-du-Medoc lies in its diversity. It is a mosaic of sandy-gravelly and gravelly slopes on which are located the best vineyards, including La Tour Carnet. Soil structure presents a great similarity with that of neighboring appellations of Pauillac and Saint-Julien.

The  history  of Château La Tour Carnet dates back to the 12th century. Indeed, this vast vineyard of  132 hectares  is undoubtedly one of the oldest domains of the Medoc. Its architecture is purely medieval as evidenced by the tower, surrounded by moats, which was built in 1120. The domain takes its name from the valiant squire Carnet having fought alongside lord Jean de Fait: his self-denial and his bravery were such that he received the property in inheritance.

Subsequently, the estate belonged to illustrious owners, including the Montaigne family. Since the 2000s, Château La Tour Carnet has been taken over by  Bernard Magrez , who has started a restoration and renovation program. Located in the heart of the Medoc, the property has a unique and exceptional terroir, called the “Butte de la Tour Carnet”. It is a visual curiosity but also geological since it is the only clay-limestone mound of the Medoc. The White of La Tour Carnet is one of the rare white wine produced in the Médoc.
