Palate Profile

The 2014 Château La Tour Carnet is mainly composed of Merlot: 68%, completed by 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. It displays a purple-tinted inky colour. The nose is dominated by the ageing process and presents an expression of black fruits when swirling the glass. The wine seems full-bodied with a great texture. The palate of this Haut-Medoc Fourth Classified Growth is solidly built on a sappy tannic structure, without being aggressive. In the retro-olfaction, the black fruit can be found again.

Critic Awards

Brilliant aromas of blackberries, fresh mushrooms and dried flowers. Black licorice as well. Full body, tight and silky with ripe tannins and a linear line to it. Wet earth and spices.

The 2014 La Tour Carnet was a wine that I tasted last year from bottle, so why not give it another whirl to remind readers of its quality. There is a lot going on aromatically with plenty of boisterous black cherry and raspberry fruit, maintaining that floral element that I discerned last year. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, perhaps the oak on this bottle a little more conspicuous than before, but that will be subsumed with two or three years in bottle
