    Product description

    Ch. Caronne Ste Gemme is only a short walk from Ch. Gruaud-Larose in Saint-Julien and lies on a deep layer of gravels. This warm soil is particularly well-suited for Cabernet Sauvignon, allowing it to achieve optimum ripeness and resulting in wines with great depth and silky tannins.

    Aged for 12 months and made in classic 225l French barrels of which 25% are renewed each year. Dark cherry and menthol flavours with attractive undergrowth aromas. Medium bodied with dry tannin, the vintage starts showing very well.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Château Caronne Ste Gemme

    Bought in 1900 by Emile Borie, the estate is now in its 4th generation. The vineyards lie on the typical gravel soils, particularly well-suited for Cabernet Sauvignon. Grapes are selected and destemmed before going through a cold maceration, so the wine gains complexity while avoiding the extraction of harsh tannins. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (20% new) making a classic Bordeaux with silky tannins and a great purity of fruits.
