A brief history
Château La Carelle sits in the heart of the Blaye region and has been operated by the Bayle family since the late 19th century. Unlike other vineyards, the manor house and the different cellars are located directly opposite the village’s in the centre of St. Paul. The vineyard is located one kilometre further west on sandy clay soil.
This geological specificity provides two advantages: the soil is more easily tilled, which is important for our sustainable farming approach, and grapes can develop complex aromas and a lighter tannic structure.
