Currently we produce three different white wines; Blanc de Carsin, Sauvignon de Carsin and L'Etiquette Grise. Our red wines are Rouge de Carsin, Cuvée Noire, Terroir and Cuvée Millésime. Every year we also produce a Rosé de Carsin and sweet white wine, Cadillac. Here you can find more detailed information on the different wines!
Blanc de Carsin
Our house white wine, Blanc de Carsin, is a perfect aperitif for any occasion. The crisp acidity from Sauvignon and round fruitiness from Sémillon give this wine nice, balanced mouthfeel with notes of citrus and gooseberries. Great wine also to combine with salads, picnics, brunches and seafood.
This wine is made from a rare white variety, Sauvignon Gris. There are only a few thousand hectares of this grape planted in France. The wine is matured in oak barrels for 8 months and is very rich in exotic fruit aromas such as pineapple and passion fruit. Perfect match for rich fish or poultry dishes.
Sauvignon de Carsin
Our 100% Sauvignon Blanc comes from the parcel of Laroque in the neighbouring commune. This parcel is especially well exposed to sunlight and produces intense but fresh fruit. Sauvignon de Carsin is crisp, but has the firm body to be served with rich salads, pastas and fish, just to name a few ideas.
Rosé de Carsin
Our summer drink, Rosé de Carsin, is filled with ripe red fruit aromas, such as dark cherries or strawberries. It is quite aromatic and powerful rosé wine and therefore a very good companion for food. Try Rosé de Carsin with charcuterie and antipasto, delicious salads or with our personal favourite; the Bouillabaisse soup.
Rouge de Carsin
Our house red, Rouge de Carsin, works well every day of the week. It is rich and tasty red wine filled with dark fruit aromas. The wine has a big mouthfeel, but the soft and round tannins create a good balance. Delicious combination with pizza, pasta, or actually almost anything! This wine is available in various sizes from 0,375l to 5l bottles.
This wine is our special blend of 6 grape varieties; Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Carmenere. All the different lots of these varieties are matured separately for 12 months in French oak barrels. Only before bottling the best barrels are blended together to create a wine that represents the complexity and elegance of our different varieties. This wine keeps well in the cellar for at least 5 to 10 years.
Terroir is a wine made with 100% Merlot from our organic "RC2" parcel next to the chateau. This wine is fermented and carefully matured mostly in stainless steel tanks. Terroir has only a little barrel ageing, as we prefer to show the authentic characters of the vineyard and not cover those characters with too much oak ageing. The wine ages well for at least 5 to 10 years.
Our top wine, Cuvée Millésime, is made only in great years when our oldest parcels provide the best fruit possible. Made from Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this wine is a more of a classic, prestigious Bordeaux style. It has about 30% new oak with elegant notes of ripe plum and cherries, light leather and spice as well as aromatic toastiness from the French oak barrels. This wine keeps very well in the cellar and could be kept for at least 15 years.
Charivari Wines are made by the winemaker of Chateau Carsin, Nea Berglund. It all got started in 2015 when she got her first salary for the work she had done for Carsin. She was not paid in euros, but in grapes. Nea wants to experiment with both traditional and untraditional methods and varieties. Her wines are made very naturally; no additions, no clarification, no filtering. Cheerful labels, fun experimentations and good wines! Very limited amounts of wines available for now.
