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

This vintage has produced a wine packed with intense cassis fruit with an underlay of liquorice and excellent supporting tannins. A touch of cedar wood and pencil lead adds to the character of this wine which is punching way above its weight in recent years.

Sirloin of beef served pink with roast potatoes. Yummy!
