Château-Caronne-Ste.-Gemme Haut Médoc 2010
Wine AdvocateSupple tannins and attractive camphor, mulberry, black currant and dusty, earthy notes are present in this full-bodied, legitimate sleeper of the vintage. The purity, texture, pure charm and depth of this wine are impressive. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
Wine SpectatorWell-structured, with tobacco and cedar framing damson plum, cassis and black cherry fruit. The tobacco edge re-emerges on the finish, with savory and dark olive notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2024. 20,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastHigh acidity combines with ripe fruit to produce a tense, full-bodied wine. At this stage, the fruit has not yet integrated with the tannins.
