One of the oldest buildings in the Médoc, parts of the chateau of La Tour Carnet were a fortress occupied by by the English in the 12th century. When Bordeaux returned to French rule La Tour Carnet (called Chateau de St. Laurent at the time) fell into ruin and passed through the hands of a succession of owners before being bought by the Leutken family, who owned it for a substantial period of time. La Tour Carnet is currently owned by Bernard Magrez, who also owns Château Pape-Clément in Pessac-Léognan. Since acquiring the property in 1999, Magrez has more than quadrupled the area of vineyards here.

"The 2009 La Tour Carnet has an attractive blackberry, savory and peppermint scented bouquet that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with gritty tannin, quite masculine and sharp with a slightly bitter finish. I suspect this will improve with bottle age as it amidst a dumb phase." Neal Martin
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
