Château Caronne Ste Gemme

Situated 500 metres from St Julien, adjacent to Château Gruaud Larose and Château Lascombes, this property is blessed with some very fine vineyards producing fruit worthy of Classes Growth status delivering outstanding value for money. In 2013 Francois Nony installed a new winemaking team, including Olivier Seze and Bruno Sauquet (previously at Montrose) to take this Château to the next level. This has proved to be a great decision.

Tasting Notes

Full body, with plenty of structure and firm tannins. Vibrant berry flavours and a mineral finish. One of the best 2009's in this price range – truly stunning quality

Food Matches

Sirloin of beef served pink with roast potatoes. Yummy!
