Château La Tour Carnet

Named after the medieval squire, Jean Carnet, who helped his Lord resist the French monarchy at the end of the Hundred-Year War, Château La Tour Carnet played a major role in the revolution of the Médoc vineyard. The quality of its wines was rewarded by the entry in the 1855 Grands Crus Classés Classification.

Château La Tour Carnet is one of the oldest Bordeaux wine producers in the Médoc. In fact, some parts of the building, including the round tower, date back to the 11th century. Château La Tour Carnet is one of the few Bordeaux estates to have a moat and drawbridge.

Since purchasing the estate in 2000, Bernard Magrez has returned the estate’s Château, cellars and 311 hectares to their glory days, marrying cutting-edge technology with traditional savoir-faire. In the words of the previous caretaker of this national monument, Marie-Claire Pèlegrin, Bernard Magrez’s mission here is to “cut the diamond.”
