2010 Le Carré, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
More reserved on the nose than the Astéries, the palate is also structurally bold, with dense tannins and oak characters coming through. Rich hedgerow fruit notes are balanced by a linear minerality, which gives this wine a real sense of drive and freshness. The finish is long, with notes of pure cassis fruit and a touch of oak spice.
“Much of La Carre’s tiny production (a total of 300 or so cases) comes from high class real estate near Chateau Canon and Clos Fourtet on the limestone plateau and hillsides of St.-Emilion. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc aged in 80% new oak, the 2010 exhibits a dense purple color, abundant black fruit characteristics, undeniable sucrosity, a big, juicy texture, beautiful purity and a long finish with the oak present, but subtle. “92-94 Points, Robert Parker
