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.
Caronne Ste Gemme are really reliable wine makers and produce consistently good wines. Very good expression of Cabernet Sauvignon showing both ripeness and firmness, needs time, will keep well. Still quite young and needs plenty of air to open up.
