Cousin of François-Xavier at Grand-Puy-Lacoste, and Bruno at Ducru-Beaucaillou, François' pedigree for making great wine is clear. And the château is well-placed too. While labelled Haut-Médoc, Caronne-Ste-Gemme is a stone’s throw from St-Julien and a neighbour of the second growth Château Gruard-Larose. This year, it doesn’t seem out of place in this company. We love the creamy texture, elegance of fruit, and supreme balance of the 2018 making it easily mistaken for a far loftier appellation.
