About

92

"Aromas of plums, wet earth and minerals follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins that are polished and clean. I like the walnut and fruity character in a subtle and reserved way. Needs at least five or six years of bottle age to come together. Very fine indeed."

90 Neal Martin - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Tasted at the Crus Bourgeois 2010 tasting in London. The Caronne Ste Gemme has a reserved, leafy bouquet with strong but attractive undergrowth aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannins. There is good grip and structure; plenty of tarry black fruit and a solid, graphite tinged finish. Surly at the moment, so leave this fine cru bourgeois for a couple more years. This is a fine wine from this estate. Drink 2014-2020. Tasted September 2012."
