Description

“This is a rich wine, packed with tannins that contrast the fresh acidity and black currant fruit. It’s a solid wine that’s constructed to age.” (4/2017) 93-94 pts, Wine Enthusiast

“This has a deep rich ruby colour with powerful dark fruit aromatics. It’s smooth, rich and extremely good quality, with an oak smokiness evident but well integrated. It feels at the very beginning of its life, with everything in place but a little overly tight on the finish, although lovely menthol notes come through. The fruit is optically sorted, and following fermentation is aged in 30% new oak. Michel Rolland consults.” (10/2018) 93 pts, Jane Anson for Decanter

“A linear and pretty wine with plenty of blackberry aromas and flavors to complement a tight and chewy tannin structure. Medium to full body and a bright finish. More structured than the 2015.” (4/2017) 92-93 pts, James Suckling

“The 2016 La Tour Carnet is fabulous. Rich, dense and voluptuous in the glass, the 2016 exudes intensity in every dimension. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, menthol, licorice, pomegranate and spice give the 2016 a decidedly exotic character that is hugely appealing.” (1/2019) 92 pts, Antonio Galloni for Vinous

“Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 la Tour Carnet has an earthy nose with tobacco and underbrush over a core of warm plums, kirsch and tea. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing, elegant, juicy and soft with a savory finish.”(11/2018) 91 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Direct, with good typicity to the mix of plum pit, black cherry and cedar notes, showing a flash of iron on the slightly austere finish.” (4/2017) 87-90 pts, Wine Spectator

“Mid to deep crimson. Ripe, pure black fruit. Intense, lightly charry cassis. Chewy, chocolate tannins that both melt and resist. Bags of fruit, firmly built, just fresh enough. 16+/20 points.” (10/2018) Jancis Robinson
