Scents of dark chocolate-covered cherries, coffee beans and beef droppings. Full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, the palate features a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing very long and mineral laced.


Le Carre meaning the square became the newest of the ‘single vineyard series’ wines in 2005. These wines are made in small quantities and are based on the Cotes Cru Classe land that surrounds the town of Saint Emilion. This vineyard came from Château Canon Premier Grand Cru Classe vineyard. Le Carre is a generous wine as Robert Parker said – “packed and stacked”! The soil/terroir is a thicker layer of clay than Les Asteries with limestone that errs on the side of almost being town building stone. Two runs of green harvesting ensure that the cropping level stays down at below 30 hl/ha – four bunches to the vine. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc is the make up of the vineyard.
