    Critical Acclaim:

    Probably La Tour Carnet's best since their 2001, the 2010 La Tour Carnet exhibits wonderful ripeness, a dense ruby/purple color, notes of licorice, camphor and some toast as well as lots of black currant and blueberry fruit. It is medium to full-bodied, with attractive sweetness of tannin, good acidity, excellent delineation to its component parts, and a full-bodied, impressively long finish. This wine may close down somewhat, given the moderate tannins, but it seems relatively accessible despite being a 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035.

    A wine with dark berry, licorice and tar character. Subtle and silky. Lovely polished tannins and fresh acidity.

    James Suckling

    A very polished wine, it’s packed with new wood and smooth tannins. It has a delicious juicy redberry fruit character that reflects its elegance.
