'Le Carre'
Saint Emilion Grand Cru

93 Points, VINOUS by Antonio Galloni

"A powerful, full-throttle wine, 2012 Le Carré hits the palate with serious intensity. Black cherries, plums, smoke and licorice meld together in a dark, baritone Saint Emilion built on resonance and concentration. The 2012 can be drunk now or cellared for another decade. The super-ripe, voluptuous style is incredibly alluring."

  • Technical Information
Le Carré is found at the entrance of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion. The vineyard formed a part of a Premier Grand Cru Classé. The underlying terroir of a thin layer of clay over limestone introduces great intensity which is enhanced by low yields and meticulous winemakng. Packed and stacked – this is a ripe and lavish wine.
