Winemaker's Notes

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.

Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"Deep, chalky notes intermixed with black fruits, camphor, and an almost ethereal floral note make for a full-bodied wine that has slightly more austerity than Laforge or Teyssier (two other wines from the same team), but considerable style and nobility. In addition, it is substantial, powerful and capable of 20 years of longevity. "
95 Points

"Dense and loamy, with lots of roasted cocoa bean, ganache and smoldering tobacco fronting for thickly layered plum, steeped fig and black currant preserves notes. Long and broad through the finish, with the loamy edge easily holding sway. There's loads of grip, but it's fully embedded, and this should age rather slowly. Best from 2015 through 2030."
93 Points

"A powerful wine, very ripe and rounded. Finely concentrated, with dark plum skins and opulent tannins.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
93 Points

"Deep ruby. Perfumed aromas of ripe red cherry, sweet spices and aromatic herbs. Fresh and clean in the mouth, with flavors similar to the aromas. The long finish features supple mounting tannins. This parcel of vines, situated next to Clos Fourtet, was originally purchased from Chateau Canon.
Range: 88-91"
91 Points

"Some mineral and blueberry character. Full body, firm tannins."
