The estate is characterized by soils composed of a highly chalky clay base covered with a thick layer of Gunzian gravel, making up the famous "butte de La Tour Carnet."
40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
"A sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 exhibits a dense plum/purple color along with loads of sweet berry fruit, black cherries, licorice and camphor intermixed with hints of mocha and oak. Reminiscent of La Lagune, the texture is plush, round, generous and irresistible. Drink this pure, impressively endowed 2008 over the next 10-14 years."
