    March 2, 2018 - Proppen gik i stykker.
    Vinen var ikke gået over.
    Den smagte fint.

    November 2, 2015 - Holding up surprisingly well. Clearly past the top. Not much fruit left, but many tertiary notes, including some pleasant animal notes

    November 20, 2013 - Very pleasant when opening the bottle - still some nose left.
    Colour, still a dark red / purple and plenty of flavour when drinking.
    Had feared way over its peak, but still very much enjoyable.
    Excellent price / quality for Haut-Medoc !!!

    April 25, 2011 - Well past it's prime - lots of secondary notes but very lean. Short aftertaste. Drink up.

    January 18, 2009 - Good color - still red at the edge. Bouquet classic Bordeaux as is the palate (black currant, leather, tobacco etc). Decent finish. Good wine. Drink or keep.

    (Chateau Caronne Ste Gemme Haut-Médoc) A good depth of smoky black fruits on the nose. Softly rounded, unpretentious palate with black fruits and firm acidity. The tannins come through a little on the midpalate. Black fruit profile on the palate too. Needs three to four years.
