Château La Tour Carnet

Château La Tour Carnet (5. Cru) er nok det ældste slot i Haut Médoc, måske i hele Médoc (tidligere Château Saint-Laurent). Ejendommen blev overtaget i 2000 af den allerede legendariske Bernard Magrez, der er en kompromisløs vinkøbmand, som har sat sit tydelige præg på mangt og meget i Bordeaux. På Château La Tour Carnet i Saint Christoly Médoc er han heller ikke gået på kompromis. Slottet og de omliggende 75 ha vinmarker er gennemrenoverede og kældrene rummer det nyeste udstyr til vinproduktion.

Vinen lagres normalt ca. 18 måneder på egefade, hvoraf 60 % er nye fade. Château La Tour Carnet er ikke en investeringsvin. Det er en fremragende Haut Médoc, som bør købes for at nyde. Kvaliteten har været stødt stigende gennem de sidste 10 år.

1. vinen hedder Château La Tour Carnet 5. Cru, 2. vinen hedder Les Pensées de La Tour Carnet og husets hvidvin Château La Tour Carnet blanc (Bordeaux blanc).

Château La Tour Carnet dates back to the 12th century and is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc region. The medieval architecture features a tower built in 1120 and the château is surrounded by a moat. La Tour Carnet has had several illustrious and famous owners, including the family of Michel de Montaigne, one of the greatest French philosophers and twice-elected Mayor of Bordeaux. Les Pensées de La Tour Carnet takes its name from the famous Essais written by Michel de Montaigne. The vineyard of Château La Tour Carnet was planted there in 1407.

Named after the medieval squire, Jean Carnet, who 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 the Médoc vineyard. The quality of its wine is rewarded by the entry in the classification of 1855 Grands Crus Classés. Château La Tour Carnet is one of the oldest Bordeaux wine producers in the Médoc. In fact, some parts of the building, including the round tower, date back to the 11th century. Château La Tour Carnet is one of the few Bordeaux estates to have a moat and drawbridge. Since purchasing the estate in 2000, Bernard Magrez has returned the estate’s Château, cellars and 311 hectares to their glory days, marrying 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".
