Château Caronne Ste Gemme, Haut Medoc 2009

Caronne is a 45 ha property lying just to the west of St.Julien, planted traditionally with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. François Nony has made many improvements at the property which have gradually brought up the quality of the wines, bringing out the fruit and softening the style without losing the essential character of the wine. It is fermented in stainless steel before being transferred to cuvee for the malolactic. It is then blended and transferred into medium-toasted Allier barriques, 25-30% of which are new, where it ages for around 18 months.

On the nose this is full of crème de mûres and violets with notes of graphite and cedar. The palate is well-defined yet plump with ripe tannins, freshness and a great concentration of black and red fruits. A drinking wine which could easily be confused for Cru Classé.

“Steady, stylish quality, repays patience. At minor Cru Classé level.” Hugh Johnson

This really is very good. A great vintage and drinking perfectly now. My wife isn’t a claret fan but she loved it also. We can’t normally manage a bottle over dinner, but this went in no time. I’ve already been back to buy a few more bottles. I’m yet to try the 2005, but have high hopes for that too.
