An environmental approach
Château Carlmagnus has developed while remaining faithful to a single philosophy: to produce fantastic wines; while honoring and preserving Fronsac, this exceptional territory. This is how the culture of the vine has always been carried out in Reasoned Agriculture. To develop the identity of the vineyard, he converted part of it to Organic Agriculture, allowing the rediscovery of the terroir’s originality. Meticulous work in harmony with the rhythms of nature for the respect of the environment and men. Great wines are created based on passion, patience, and know-how, values that are dear to Château Carlmagnus.
From 2020, the first wines in Organic Agriculture are produced in Fronsac and Bordeaux, certified by the EcocertLabel. Three years were necessary, and almost all the vineyard is in the process of conversion. This process requires that no synthetic treatments or insecticides be added to the vines. This conversion is carried out in the same lineage that has allowed the development of the great wines of Château Carlmagnus: passion, rigor and the preservation of the terroir and the environment are the guidelines of our work.
Arnaud's environmental sensitivity has led him to plant lavender and 60 truffle oaks in his vineyard and to place nesting boxes for birds. Convinced that great wine can only develop in harmony with its environment, Arnaud does not limit himself to working in the vineyards but puts all his know-how at the service of the terroir.
Château Carlmagnus and Francs-Magnus are part of modern viticulture, concerned about environmental issues. Preservation and development of the terroir are decisive factors in the quality of a vineyard, while great wines are born from passion. All these characteristics bring elegance and singularity to Carlmagnus and our different wines.
