2016 Caronne Ste Gemme Cru Bourgeois Medoc (Bottle - 1/75cl)
Château Caronne Ste-Gemme is located in the municipality of St Laurent Medoc, on the left bank of Bordeaux. Emile Borie purchased the Chateau in 1900, it was passed down to his grandson Jean Nony-Borie who has directed the property since 1943 with his nephew François Nony. This is quite a big property over 150 hectares with gravelley soils. The varietals are divided between 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot with a relatively high planting density of 10 000 plants per hectare. The work in the vineyard is traditional, the vines are trellised and plowed and the harvest is carried out almost entirely by hand.
