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

Deep, almost opaque in colour, intense cassis domainates the bouquet but there is also a delicious freshness. Aged in 25% new oak, the palate is brooding, meaty and sturdy, balanced with beautifully ripe tannins and notes of cedar.

Food Matches

Beef sirloin, lamb, duck confit
