Hide the tasting notes

Rich cassis and sweet oak spice. Fine but very firm tannins. Attractive smoked-meat character. Good, solid stuff. (16.5)

Score: 16 - 17 , Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2017-2028

Pretty core of fruit for the vintage with plum, berry and hints of earth. Medium body, round tannins, fresh finish.

Dense colour, well-extracted berry fruit, quite fleshy and good tannins for the future.

Score: 88 , Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2025

Soft and forward, with friendly plum and cherry compote notes and a sandalwood stitching that holds the finish nicely

Hide the tasting notes

Black cherry, savoury and structural. No lack of ripeness, but pretty firm and unyielding at this stage. Reliable, classic claret with very enjoyable savoury character. (16.5)

Score: 16 - 17 , Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2028

Sweet confected nose with plums, then pure fruit and mentholated notes, finishing dry.

Score: 87 - 89

Good fresh red and black fruits, some depth and class. An elegant southern Médoc.

Score: 88 , Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2024

Charming, with slightly high-pitched red cherry and damson plum fruit lined with a violet note. Not dense by any stretch, but manages purity and balance.

Hide the tasting notes

Lightish colour for Sociando, garnet red. Very fresh and primary with blackberry. Liquorice and a touch of pepper and toast on the finish. Pleasant and easy.

Score: 88 - 90

Bright and fruity with blueberry and cream character. Medium body with fine tannins and an attractive finish. Sociando performs outstandingly in difficult years.

Score: 90 - 91 , Jamessuckling.com

Dense colour, polished fruit and very good depth. Elegance and classic grip on the finish.

Score: 89 , Decanter.com Maturity: 2017-2028

Offering a core of blueberry and blackberry fruit, this isn't shy with its toast as a roasted vanilla edge holds sway on the finish. Yet there’s a juicy edge and some solid flesh for the vintage.

Score: 87 - 90 , Wine Spectator

[Add to shopping basket] Tour Carnet Haut Medoc £200 £150 - £220 - 17 86-88 89-90 85-87 87
Hide the tasting notes

Juicy cassis and smart, toasty oak aromas. Good concentration and persistence on the palate, plenty of floury tannin to finish. Serious, savoury and worthy of cellaring. (17+)

Score: 17 , Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2028

Creamy with savoury black notes, toasty oak and a drying finish.

Score: 86 - 88

A balanced, refined wine with silky tannins and a blackberry and dark-cherry character. Medium to full body. Clean mineral and dark-fruit character.

Score: 89 - 90 , Jamessuckling.com

A blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon the Château La Tour Carnet 2014 has a tight knit, slightly herbaceous bouquet with plenty of sous-bois aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with green-tinged black peppery fruit on the entry, although it attains a decent degree of harmony towards the finish. Tasted March 2014.

Score: 85 - 87 , erobertparker.com

Impressive deep colour, good Cabernet black fruits, good structure and length, good future.

Score: 87 , Decanter.com Maturity: 2018-2024

Rounded, friendly style, with a core of blueberry and plum fruit coated liberally with a roasted vanilla bean note. A bit obvious in style but has the fruit for balance.

Score: 86 - 89 , Wine Spectator
