Description

Chateau Caroline a red wine from Bordeaux. It is bottled as a Moulis en Medoc and is the sister Chateau of Chateau Lestage. 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.

Chateau Caroline comprises 9 hectares of vineyards and was previously part of the Chateau Lestage. It is named Chateau Caroline after the granddaughter of Marcel Chanfreau who took over the property in 1963. Today the estate is run by the eponymous Caroline Chanfreau, her brother Jean and his wife Marie-Hélène.

The vineyards of Chateau Caroline are planted with 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and are 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 de-stemming, the wine is vinified in small, temperature controlled vats which allows maximum control over the vinification process. 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.
