Château Caronne Ste Gemme 2011, Medoc

Château Caronne Ste Gemme 2011, Medoc

Chateau Caronne Ste. Gemme has been in the hands of the same family since 1900. The vineyard is in the Haut-Medoc, just inland from Saint-Julien, and has a high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are classic traditionally-styled Bordeaux, with a good capacity for ageing. Plantings consist of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot and the average vine age is 25 years.

The 2011 vintage was quite a difficult one all round in Bordeaux. But Caronne Ste Gemme are really reliable wine makers and produce consistently good wines. This one has a bright nose of red fruit with a perfumed edge follows onto the palate with added nuances of smoke, black pepper and subtle oak. Still quite young and needs plenty of air to open up.
