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. 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.
