2015 Chateau Caronne Ste Gemme Haut-Medoc
Wine Advocate: 86-88 Points
The 2015 Caronne Saint Gemme has a pleasant, estuarine-scented bouquet. Think about swigging a decent Cabernet out of mudflats just after the tide has gone out, the tang of salt in the air. The palate is medium-bodied and balanced, but the oak needs to be better integrated and leaves a bit too much powdered cocoa on the finish. Let’s hope that this will be absorbed during élevage.
