Chateau La Tour Carnet 2016
Deep garnet, with hints of mahogany and biscuit, signs of aging. The nose is complex. Notes of blackcurrant and plum appear in turn, followed by secondary aromas of spices, like cinnamon, and roasted notes of charred wood.Forthright flavor revealing the incredible finesse of well-rounded, perfectly balanced tannins. Roasted notes and ripe fruit on the palate. Balanced, full-bodied finish. Christmas turkey or capon, stuffed with truffle and chestnut confit.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
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.
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. Drinking Window 2024 - 2040
