Description

A classified growth that remains somewhat under-the-radar. Château La Tour Carnet, a 4emé Cru Classé property, has a long and illustrious history and its wines enjoyed a considerable upsurge in reputation since the mid-1970's when it was bought by Louis Lipschitz. He replanted much of the vineyards and made many long overdue changes to the vinification process.

La Tour Carnet has 42 hectares of vineyards in St-Laurent in the Haut-Médoc. The wine is typically a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. La Tour Carnet produces dry, medium-bodied, classically made clarets that show at their best with 5 years of bottle ageing.
