Haut Medoc, 4th Growth Classification
A classified growth that remains somewhat under-the-radar. Château La Tour Carnet, a 4emé Cru Classé property, has a long and illustrious history and its wines enjoyed a considerable upsurge in reputation since the mid-1970's when it was bought by Louis Lipschitz. He replanted much of the vineyards and made many long overdue changes to the vinification process.
La Tour Carnet has 42 hectares of vineyards in St-Laurent in the Haut-Médoc. The wine is typically a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. La Tour Carnet produces dry, medium-bodied, classically made clarets that show at their best with 5 years of bottle ageing.

Margaux, 1er Grand Cru Classe
*** 93-95 Points - Wine Journal ***
"A sensational bottle that simply defied every rule about Bordeaux. Intense liquorish, cherry liqueur nose: very rich. Thick exotic, rounded palate with super-ripe Merlot. Reminds me of a Petrus! Very complex with spicy, fleshy finish. This bottle is high-toned, succulent and quite delicious. Beyond my wildest expectations. " Neil Martin, Wine Journal 2004

"Aromas of raisin and coffee. Taste corresponds to aromas, but adds fresh mint and nuts. Sweet, but with balancing acidity. Complex.
By far the best of the few Madeiras I have tasted. (92 points)
Near perfect with tiramisu and desserts made with cream and dried fruits.
