Deep garnet red with a violet tint.
The nose is complex, combining the prune aromas typical of very ripe Merlot with discreet and elegant oak.
Supple, round and full-bodied, this is a harmonious wine with plenty of length on the fruit, building to a crescendo finish.
Saint-Emilion Baron Carl is dominated by Merlot (80%), a variety ideally suited to the appellation, especially the limestone soils on which it produces a supple and fruity wine that ages well. Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) develops incomparable aromas and tannins that give the wine character and additional ageing potential, while Cabernet Franc and Malbec (5%) provide elegance.
