The 2015 La Tour Carnet Blanc is terrific. Varietal Sauvignon Blanc aromatics meld into a core of peach, apricot and lemon confit in this vibrant, beautifully textured white. The combination of freshness and mid-palate intensity is compelling. The blend is The blend is 54% Sauvignon Blanc, 26% Sauvignon Gris and 2 % SémillonThis is a gorgeous white from Bernard Magrez.

The 2015 La Tour Carnet is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit was cooled through a "cryogenic tunnel freezer," essentially spraying liquid nitrogen, and will be matured for 16 months in 30% new oak. It has a very pure bouquet, so much so that there is something almost Pinot Noir-like here, with ebullient Morello and subtle kirsch-like scents. The oak is judicious and neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. This is very smooth and harmonious in the mouth, well-judged acidity, precise and detailed. It gently fans out on the finish, completing what I think is a very well-crafted, silky and seductive Haut-Médoc. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2032

Deep crimson and glowing. Quite fresh and strict on the nose. Good vitality. Just a little tart at the moment but it should mature into something vital and refreshing. Certainly not overdone. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2032
