TASTE
Purity and focus of flavour meets richness of texture in this classic Haut- Médoc. Blackberry and blackcurrant fruit are given extra complexity by cigar box and floral notes. There is excellent finesse and depth all the way through to the finish.

PRODUCER
The vineyard of Château Caronne Ste Gemme is situated in the commune of Saint-Laurent, next to Saint-Julien, and dates back to 1648, when a local landlord rented it to a farmer in exchange for a share of the wine produced. In 1900, ownership passed to Emile and Eugène Borie; the château is now managed by Emile’s grandson Jean and his nephew, François.

VINEYARD
The forty-five hectare vineyard occupies a superb gravel plateau with sandstone and clay subsoils. The grapes were picked throughout October.

WINERY
The grapes were sorted, destemmed and partially crushed, then fermented in temperature-controlled vats at 28-30oC with gentle pump- overs. Following around three weeks’ maceration, the wine was aged for a year in French oak barriques, with twenty percent new wood. Some barrels were stirred to add extra richness.
