Chateau Caroline is the sister Chateau of Chateau Lestage. It comprised 9 hectares of vineyards and was previously part of Chateau Lestage but is now separate. It is named Chateau Caroline after the granddaughter of the owner of Chateau Lestage, Marcel Chanfreau. Moulis is the smallest of the 6 Medoc communes and is located to the south of Listrac (where Lestage is located) and Chateau Caroline is situated on the plateau of Bellevue overlooking the town of Moulis itself. The soils here are clayey-limestone which is particularly good for growing Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines of moulis are generally quite full-bodied. The vineyards are planted with 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards are tended using sustainable methods with the greatest respect for the vines and their environment. During the harvest different parcels of grapes are selected and vinified separately. After a gentle crushing and destemming, the grape must is vinified in small, temperature controlled vats which allows maximum control over the vinification. After malaolactic fermentation the wine is aged for 12 months in oak barrels, racked every three months and fined with egg white. A third of the barrels are new with each vintage. Approximately 50,000 bottles per vintage are produced.
