Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 89+

Although slightly austere and closed the day I tasted it, the 2008 La Carre reveals a dense ruby/purple color along with notes of toasty oak, licorice, black currants and crushed rocks as well as impressive richness. It requires 2-3 years of cellaring and should last 15 or more. [Robert Parker, 01/05/2011]

Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028

Vinous – 89

Medium ruby-red. Cool aromas of blackberry, mint and crushed rock. Surprisingly pliant, sweet and easygoing following the nose, with licorice and mint notes perking up the dark berry flavors. This very ripe, lush wine seems almost ready to start drinking. [Stephen Tanzer, 07/01/2011]
