Château La Tour Carnet 2000

La_Tour_Carnet_2000It was my Son’s Birthday today and to celebrate, I opened a bottle of Château La Tour Carnet 2000. Decanted about 90 minutes before drinking, the wine wasn’t showing a great deal of development. It was a deep ruby colour with only a very small garnet rim. After a bit of swirling, it opened up some surprisingly primary aromas of blackcurrant, bramble and Christmas spice. The palate exuded black fruit, lovely balanced vanilla and cinnamon spice and very well balanced, fine tannins.

Given its modest pricing, this has a good future ahead of it yet and I enjoyed it very much.

You’ll be pleased to hear my Son really enjoyed playing with all the toys he received too (and so did I…).
