Legende de La Tour Carnet Red Blend
Here we have the second wine of 4th growth Chateau La Tour Carnet made from their younger vines. It's a blend of cab sav, merlot and cab franc, and shows aromas of plums, cassis, tobacco and earthy savouriness, with a sprinkling of cinnamon and cloves. The palate is medium-bodied and savoury, with dark fruits pushing through, mellowing tannins, and a decent, smooth and spicy finish. Vennison or roo would be good with this!
We were impressed with this wine in a line up of many wines from the Médoc. Complex nose of red and black fruits, some minerals and spicey notes. On the palate, rich complex fruit, raspberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, with minerals and tobacco. Big but soft and integrated tannins. Great expression of the power of the Médoc.
