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

A rounded, brooding bouquet, the palate delivers dark fruits with hints of sweet tobacco, a touch of pencil lead and finely integrated oak. The tannins are polished and have softened whilst the finish is warming.
