Grand Cru Classé 1855 Haut-Médoc

Product ID: 43059
Description

One of the oldest Bordeaux wine producers in the Médoc.
The story of La Tour Carnet is identified with the history of France. Named after the medieval squire who unfailingly helped his Lord to resist the French monarchy at the end of the Hundred Years War, Château La Tour Carnet played a major role in the revolution of Medoc vineyard.
The quality of its wine is rewarded by the entry in the classification of 1855 Grands Crus. The diversity of its soils and the constant search for perfection make this Haut-Médoc an exceptional wine.
Château La Tour Carnet is one of the few Bordeaux estates to have a moat and drawbridge. Some parts of the building, including the round tower, date back to the 11th century.
Since purchasing the estate in 2000, Bernard Magrez has returned the estate’s Château, cellars and 311 hectares to their glory days, combining cutting-edge technology with traditional savoir-faire. In the words of the previous caretaker of this national monument, Marie-Claire Pèlegrin, it is Bernard Magrez’s mission here to “cut the diamond.
