Average critic rating : 90.5 points



A breakthrough effort as well as a sleeper of the vintage, La Tour Carnet (50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot) has been completely resurrected under the dynamic leadership of its visionary proprietor Bernard Magrez. He has turned out a dense ruby/purple-colored 2001 displaying gorgeous aromas of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, smoke, spice box, and flowers. Supple tannin, medium to full body, terrific fruit extraction, and admirable texture as well as purity suggest this noteworthy achievement will drink well between 2006-2016. The 2000 was very good, but 2001 is even better, signaling a return of form to this long forgotten classified growth. Wine Advocate.June, 2004



Blackberry and spice aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with lovely ripe tannins and a chocolate, vanilla and fruity aftertaste. Delicious wine already. Best after 2008. 14,165 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2004
