This is a beautiful, well-regarded wine offering great consistency, replete with smoky bacon, tar, and coffee bean flavours. It is marked by oak, but sexily and cleverly so, and balanced by intense, deep fruit with impact. A gentleman's claret and one of the great value sleepers of the vintage. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot from deep gravel over clay.

Already a perfumed wine, this is generous and likely to be rich while also balanced. Blackberry fruit and fine acidity balance the structure. There is good aging potential here. Apr 2017, Roger Voss, www.wineenthusiast.com
The 2016 Caronne Ste Gemme has a very attractive nose witih wild strawberry and raspberry scents, cedar and a touch of mint. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red berry fruit, a fine line of acidity, linear and taut but with plenty of freshness and an almost Pauillac-like character on the finish. This is always a well-priced Bordeaux and it is one of the best I have tasted from the estate. This comes recommended. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2020-2032
Very rich, sweet nose with an earthiness underneath. Pinched finish. Sandpaper. Fast fade. Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2029
The 2016 Caronne Ste Gemme is medium garnet-purple colored and quite woody to begin, with a core of cassis and plums with menthol and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, taut and savory in the mouth, it has a chewy finish. Nov 2018, www.robertparker.com
