    A fine property with a medieval castle, tower, moat and drawbridge, Château La Tour Carnet has a single block of vines planted on clay-marly soil which was almost entirely replanted in the 1960s. This Haut-Médoc classified fourth growth is now owned by Bernard Magrez, who has undertaken significant investments and considerably developed the wine.
