Wine Region:Bordeaux - France
Grape: 90% Merlot, 10% Carnet Sauvignon.
Tasting notes: Mint aromas signal the wood aging of this ripe wine. It is named after François Carreau, credited with being the first in Bordeaux to graft rootstock onto vines to protect against phylloxera. The wine is full, poised between big tannins and equally important dark fruits. This impressive wine will age well.
Expert Rating:Robert Parker - 91/100
How to enjoy : Pairs well with Beef and Venison
