Chateau Cartier Saint Emilion Grand Cru 1998

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £12 from the website www.cellartrade.co.uk.Viticulture in the Saint Emilion area goes back to at least Roman times, appellation status was awarded for red wines in 1936.and a system of classification set up in 1954..My bottle is the second wine from the Grand Cru Classe estate of Chateau Fonroque.Unlike the Grand wine,which is ac blend of merlot and cabernet franc Chateau Cartier is 100% merlot.I started the bottle last night with my supper of lamb chops.There is some blackcurrant and plum style fruit but the overiding impresion is of a dry and austere wine.In short,this is an OK wine but not one to write home about although it was a match for the food

Château Fonroque:
This is a 20 hectare property that was bought by the Mouix family in 1931 although they sold it to the Hubert Guillard in 2017. It has Grand Cru Classe status and has also been fully organic since 2005.. There is a second wine called Chateau Cartier
