Ch Caronne Ste Gemme 2016
The vineyards of Caronne Ste Gemme are located in the central Médoc, near Saint-Laurent-Médoc, not very far from Château Camensac, Château Belgrave and Château La Tour Carnet to the north, or from Château Lanessan to the east. The estate derives its name from Carona, a nearby spring, with Sainte Gemme being a derivative of St James, a local parish just south of Saint-Julien, near Saint-Laurent. Modern maps do not show this parish as it was abolished around the time of the Revolution, but by then viticulture was already firmly established here.
A very traditional and dry style of Bordeaux from Haut Medoc. Red fruit abound on the nose with black pepper, subtle oak and good depth of fruit on the palate, which is supported by fine structure.
Grape: 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5$ Petit Verdot
Region: Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, France
