5. L’heritage de la Tour Carnet 2010

L’Heritage de La Tour Carnet 2010

L’heritage de la Tour Carnet is the second label of La Tour Carnet from the Médoc in Bordeaux.
The most commonly cited praise for this wine is balanced structure – the tannins are described as smooth and the acidity is not too high.
It is interesting to note that the Chinese consumers on Wangjiu mostly comment on the structure of the wine rather than on the different aromas that can be found.
Where aromas are mentioned, they are referred to simply in generic categories such as “red fruits” rather than a detailed listing of “raspberry, cherry, and so on”. Also, the term “floral” is used rather than “honeysuckle, violet, etc.”

Price on Wangjiu: ¥399.00 (£42)

Wangjiu customer reviews:
“Intense on the palate, balanced, with a long finish.”
“Generously fruity aromas, smooth and round on the palate with a good, strong structure.”
“This wine is suitable for gatherings as it is affordable without appearing ‘cheap’, smooth and refreshing, and suitable for men and women. Great value.”
