    This 2014 Château La Tour Carnet is mainly composed of Merlot: 68%, completed by 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. It displays a purple-tinted inky colour. The nose is dominated by the ageing process and presents an expression of black fruits when swirling the glass. The wine seems full-bodied with a great texture. The palate of this Haut-Medoc Fourth Classified Growth is solidly built on a sappy tannic structure, without being aggressive. In the retro-olfaction, the black fruit can be found again. The end of the ageing process should allow the tannic power to refine and become rounder. It is a wine full of power.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 La Tour Carnet was a wine that I tasted last year from bottle, so why not give it another whirl to remind readers of its quality. There is a lot going on aromatically with plenty of boisterous black cherry and raspberry fruit, maintaining that floral element that I discerned last year. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, perhaps the oak on this bottle a little more conspicuous than before, but that will be subsumed with two or three years in bottle.
