"Crushed blackberry and blueberry on the nose, with hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a pretty texture. Slightly hollow center palate, but attractive."

CW's Pick
Looking for an affordable Bordeaux from the historic 2009 vintage to lay down? Look no further than the 2009 Chateau Caronne-Ste.-Gemme. When we were in Bordeaux in the spring of 2010 to taste the great 2009 vintage, we were simply blown away, not only by the sheer quality of this wine, but also by the aging potential provided by its impeccable balance of the fruit and tannins. Offering a classic Medoc nose of graphite and new oak, with plummy, berry and cassis fruit, this can be enjoyed now (with 1 hour decanting), but will easily improve through 2019 and beyond.
Wine Review

This property is a real hidden "gem", just a stone's throw away from the St. Julien appellation and stars such as Lagrange and Gruaud Larose. We're happy to keep the secret because it means more wine for us! Owner Francois Nony, whom we got to visit with during our recent trip to Bordeaux, delivers a great 2009. A blackcurrant and cassis-like nose leads to a classic Medoc earthy finish. This wine is well-balanced with a freshness of fruit that is a hallmark of this vintage. It should age well for 5-10 more years. A real bargain!
