The castle tower the book covers an area of 72 hectares, planted with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc.

Reviews about Château La Tour Carnet 2012
The 75 hectares of La Tour Carnet stretch for South / South-West facing slopes. The vines of the vineyard is composed of 51% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc 6% and 3% Petit Verdot.
The wines are aged in barrels (60% new) for 18 months.
This 2012 vintage is indeed the proof of the hard work of Bernard Magrez to change this Haut-Médoc among the greatest. Elegant and roundness, it offers a light fruity, in the right measure. This will soften with time.
Probably one of the best quality / price of the Médoc.

Reviews about Château La Tour Carnet 2015
The reddish brown edges were not very nice. Definitely the wrong colour, although it was an acceptable wine. This Château La Tour Carnet offers predominating notes of berries and red fruits . Very light, pleasent.
It wasn't well paired with food, but the wine was good and tasty.
