Chateau La Tour Carnet 2013


Experienced with vintages such as 2001, 2004, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015, this 2013 is the most friendly. The blend aims at complexity and generosity: 60% merlot, 34% Cabernet, a dash of Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. However, we have to taste it again at a later point in time to do more justice.


Should it have scored a higher score, we wouldn't have been able to buy it at this low price. RP88(Parker et al.), we consistently ranked La Tour Carnet high as a humble Cru from Haut Medoc. Awarded 90 points, Wine Enthusiast commented, 'ripe and fruity, this is full of rich tannins and a soft texture. It has tight acidity, followed by a smoky, toasty character.' Stephan Tanzer commended the structure, the mid-palate and freshness.


We awarded this wine DD92 because we find it balanced, fresh, and with decent length,
