Château La Carelle
Blaye côte de Bordeaux
Wine has been made here since the early 20th century. Although there is no actual chateau at Château La Carelle – there are only cellars – the name is retained because there was once a house on the estate.
The vineyard, located 1 km away, has a terroir with soil that is easy to plough and is also conducive to wines with complex aromatic structure and fine, relatively light tannin.
Reflecting its soil, Château La Carelle is a smooth and harmonious wine. It has lovely blackcurrant and raspberry overtones on the bouquet and an attractive, light tannic structure on the palate.
Well-balanced and sophisticated, Château La Carelle marries well with white meat, fish and delicate cheeses.
Subtle and feminine, this wine is easy to relate to, and is surprisingly good either on its own or with everyday food.
