Château La Carelle

Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux


Historical Fun Facts
Chateau La Carelle dates several centuries and its name refers to a “Carelle” which is the area a wine worker can cover working for an hour equivalent in today’s terms as 3.33 hectares. This complex aromatic Blaye is a merlot blend that is made with great finesse. Its light tannins makes it suitable for all palates and is particular favourite in Asia. Good on its own, in our views, to wind down after a long day of work! 


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 Carel le 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
