La Tour Carnet 2013

Tasted Blind by Andreas Larsson, 2013 La Tour Carnet is 'Quite a ripe nose of roasted oak, dark berries, cassis, plum, smoke and delicate spices. The palate has pure and vivid fruit, rather good weight, is rounded and supple with fresh dark fruit and a long finish.'. So yes, 2013 is also in the classical style of La Tour Carnet.

James Suckling talked about the fullness and fine tannins. Wine Enthusiast commended the ripeness and fruity, rich tannins with a soft texture; and tight acidity, followed by a smoky, toasty character. Falstaff praised the floral nose, structure, and excellent mid-palate to go with food.

Experienced with vintages such as 2001, 2004, 2015, 2009, 2011 and 2012, we think 2013 has the potential. The blend aims at complexity(mix of 4 royal grapes) and generosity(higher merlot content): 60% merlot, 34% Cabernet, a dash of Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.
