Selection of the best parcels of Château de Carles (10 ha out of the 20 ha of the estate), certainly the finest and most ambitious wine of Fronsac, making since 2000 equal game with the best classified growths of the slopes of Saint-Émilion.
Bettane & Desseauve : 93-94/100
Revue du Vin de France :
Dupont (Le Point) :
Quarin : 86-87/100 « La bouche démarre grasse, plutôt bien construite, mais la saveur manque en finale. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 90-92/100 « The 2019 Haut-Carles is a fabulous expression of Fronsac. Rich and resonant, the 2019 possesses striking depth from start to finish. Inky dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, espresso, licorice and spice add character in an opulent, flamboyant wine. »
Martin (Vinous) : 91-93/100 « The palate is well balanced with fine grain tannins, well judged acidity. A harmonious Fronsac with a smooth texture that glides across the finish. This is a very well crafted Fronsac, though it needs 5-6 years in bottle. »
