From Bordeaux visionary Bernard Magrez, this blend of 57% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot comes from one of the most ancient fortified chateaux of the Medoc (constructed in 1120 A.D.). Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by hints of graphite, black currants, spice box and charcoal. This medium-bodied 2011 reveals excellent to outstanding concentration, sweet tannin and a long finish. A sleeper of the vintage, it is a beautiful effort from this challenging vintage. Moreover, it will evolve for 15 or more years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The La Tour Carnet is a blend of 57% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot cropped between 19th September and 10th October, being raised in 30% new oak. It has a slightly anonymous bouquet that demands coaxing, offering undergrowth and tertiary scents, the fruit a little muted. The palate is medium-bodied with a rather angular entry, although there is decent stuffing on the mid-palate. Yet the finish is tapered a little although there is an attractive minerally aftertaste.

A little lean but some attractive minerally tannins, with fresh acidity and a medium fruit concentration on the palate. May fill out with elevage. jamessuckling.com

A modern approach, with roasted vanilla bean and anise notes leading the way for plum sauce and warm currant confiture flavors. A little firm wood still shows on the finish, but good material here. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Good expression of summer berry fruits, good northern Medoc firmness with enough ripeness to age well. Drink 2015-2024. Decanter.com

Oak, truffle and black cherry scents with plush, fat textures and a sweet, ripe, oaky, black cherry finish. This will be fun to drink young. theWineCellarInsider.com
