Description

The smoothness and complexity of a Fronsac wine

The estate

Château de Carles dominates the Isle valley, in the heart of the Fronsac appellation in the Bordeaux region. This 14th century building took on its current appearance during the Renaissance when the greatest minds rubbed shoulders with Montaigne and La Boétie. The estate was started 120 years ago by Senator Guillaume Chastenet de Castaing, and today it is the 4th generation that continues to write the wine history of this family estate.

The vineyard

Produced since 1994, Château Haut-Carles is a Fronsac wine made from a meticulous plot selection in a 17-hectare vineyard. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on clay and clay-limestone soils on a molasse base.

Winemaking and ageing

The grapes are harvested by hand in small crates and are then sorted by density. Gravity vinification of each plot. Aged for 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels (50% of which are new) in a thermo-regulated ageing cellar.

Grape variety

Merlot (100%).
