A delicious and fruity Fronsac from an excellent vintage

With its iconic name echoing its imperial past, Chateau CarlMagnus is one of the most beautiful references in the Fronsac appellation, east of the Bordeaux region.

The estate, belonging to the French artist and former fencing champion Arnaud Roux-Oulie, was indeed visited by the Emperor Charlemagne. In a vineyard covering an area of 10 hectares, planted in clay-limestone soil, Arnaud Roux-Oulie pursues his ambition to produce great wines that reflect the identity of their exceptional terroir.

A tribute to the flagship red grape of the Right Bank, the Chateau CarlMagnus 2017 is a 100% Merlot. From a vintage referred to as a "winemaker’s vintage", the Chateau CarlMagnus 2017 highlights all the hard work and attention invested into this vintage.

To respect the character of the fruit, the grapes are picked when they reach their optimum maturity, and not a day before or after. Without first being crushed, the grapes are rigorously selected and placed in wooden vats. The vinifications are highly technical, featuring a slow maceration for a gentle extraction, allowing for elegant and distinguished tannins. A beautiful Fronsac from a vintage that was particularly flattering for the appellation.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Carlmagnus gives up savory notes of charcuterie and tapenade with a core of baked blackberries and plum preserves plus a waft of bouquet garni. The medium-bodied palate is sporting a good amount of oak with a firm, grainy texture and good length.
