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 and the results are already showing. A super Claret lover's Claret.

Tasting Notes

A delicious rich, raisiny bouquet, intense, powerful with a refreshing balance. 35% new oak. This wine offers a stunning complexity. One of the finest performances in the Cru Bourgeois category this vintage.

Food Matches

Sirloin of beef served pink with roast potatoes. Yummy!
