Château de Carles

This historic estate which dates back to the 15th century is one of the jewels of Fronsac. Since the beginning of the 19th century, Château de Carles has been in the hands of the same family. Today Constance and Stéphane Droulers have restored the domain and sought the help of several of the region's leading winemakers including Jean-Luc Thunevin, Alain Reynaud and Jean-Philippe Fort and the quality of the wines is much improved. The wine is a blend of 90 % Merlot avec 5% de Malbec et 5% de Cabernet Franc grapes. The 2012 vintage is a good success with an expressive mix of black pepper, tobacco, autumn fruits and cedar in the nose. The palate is balanced between a good level of tannins and expressive and fresh fruit flavours. Well strucutred, this wine can be enjoyed already but will âge well until 2020.
