Familial History








Family Story


Arnaud Roux-Oulié is the third generation of winemakers in his family. His grandfather, Ernest Roux, bought the Château Lagüe in the 50s and launched the property.

In his youth, Arnaud enjoyed learning from his grandfather's precious viticultural advice.

Françoise Roux, Arnaud's mother,  manages the company during few years. 
Arnaud took over the estate when he was 20 years old and diversified it by acquiring 2 hectares to create his estate, the Château Carlmagnus. The name of the estate was inspired by Emperor Charlemagne who, stayed in the region and built a fortress. 
Depuis, ce cru est devenu un des fleurons en appellation Fronsac et sa distribution est internationale. En 2011, Arnaud rachète un nouveau domaine, Francs-Magnus (Bordeaux supérieur).

Since then, this vineyard has become one of the jewels in the Fronsacappellation and, its distribution is international. In 2011, Arnaud bought a new estate, Francs-Magnus (Bordeaux Supérieur). With his 2020 vintage, he vinified new vintages in organic agriculture for Châteaux Carlmagnus and Francs-Magnus. The ambitions of the winemaker for his estates do not stop there. Many new products will soon get unveiled.
