A very reliable Cru Bourgeois property, Château Caronne Ste. Gemme is located in the Haut-Médoc adjacent to St.Julien. Owned by Jean and Francois Nony, the property consists of 45 hectares of vineyards and produces over 20,000 cases a year.
The vineyard soil is gravel over iron rich sandstone which results in elegant, Cabernet driven wines.
Caronne-Ste.Gemme is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel before being transferred for maturation in oak barriques (20% of which are new, the rest being 2nd or 3rd fill) for 12 months.
A rich nose of red fruit, cedar and spices leads on to a powerful palate that is full of red fruit flavours, herbs and oak balanced by firm tannins and subtle oak. A lovely wine from a super vintage.
