Le Carre is a single-vineyard of just over one and a half hectares that abuts Clos Fourtet near the centre of the town of Saint Emilion. The wine is a dense purple color. Abundant quantities of black fruits, crushed rocks and flowers nicely wrapped in new oak, where it receives it's malolactic fermentation and aging. Whilst the main part of the wine is made up by Merlot, there is also a Cabernet Franc compliment.
"An outstanding effort for the vintage, this 2007 exhibits a perfumed personality with lots of blue, red, and black fruits intermixed with graphite and subtle oak. Surprisingly rich with silky tannins and a long, heady, fleshy finish, it should drink well for 10-12 years."
