Domaine. [to know more about the wines highlighted in blue, click and watch a short reel]
This reference estate in the Fronsadais is under the management of Constance and Stéphane Droulers, former managing partner of the famous international investment bank Lazard Frères. Their two daughters, Eléonore and Oriane have just joined the management of the estate. The 20-hectare vineyard, in one piece, overlooks the Isle valley. It has been entirely restructured and the two wines have reached the highest level. Château-de-Carles is a wine for pleasure and Haut-Carles is the château’s haute couture cuvée.

AOP Fronsac, Haut-Carles 2016. The wine has a silky and intense profile, with a beautiful tannic envelope. 92/100
