2016 Château Le Carré  (St. Émilion) 93

Smoke, wood, truffle, vanilla bean and black raspberry are the initial scents you’ll find. Full bodied, round, silky and offering, dark ripe plums and licorice on the palate, this should reward aging nicely. Made from blending 85% Merlot with 15% Cabernet, the wine reached 14.5% alcohol with a pH of 3.71.

2005 Château Le Carré  (St. Émilion) 92

Le Carre is tight at the moment. Air and a lot coaxing brought out crushed stone, licorice, black cherry and spice notes. This wine has gone to sleep. Based on previous tasting's, this will improve when it wakes up. I would not open this for at least 5-8 years.

The name, which means square in French, is anything but square. Black fruit with tropical accents make up the aromatics. This opulent, full bodied wine ends in a blackberry, licorice filled finish. Interestingly, Les Asteries and La Carre (both made by Maltus) are only about 100 yards apart, yet they are very different wines.
