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

The beautiful red coloured wine offers nice aromatic notes, a good concentration and perfectly ripe tannins. The round, charming and elegant 2012 vintage is a well-balanced wine.
