Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: A fleshy style, with a slightly extracted feel to the plum skin, raspberry confiture and blackberry reduction notes, followed by ganache-accented toast through the finish. Solid, but clearly style-driven. 89 - 92
Ratings
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Le Carre, which was once part of Château Curé-Bon, is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc that matured in 80% new French oak (the other part of Curé-Bon now forms Croix Canon). The fruit was picked on October 2 and 13 respectively. It offers dark plum and raspberry preserve scents, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin at the moment. A slightly more muscular Le Carré, but with plenty of black fruit towards the sappy finish. This will meld together throughout its élevage and should age well over 8-15 years. 90 - 92 Points
Awards
James Suckling: A minerally and fresh red with walnut, chalk and dark berry character. Full and silky. Build on the palate. Powerful. 92 - 93 Points
