Chateau Caronne Sainte Gemme

The terroir of Caronne is composed of deep gravel from the Guzère worm on a subsoil of alios to the east and light clay to the west. Its shape is that of an island, 18 meters high, forming a resurgence of the plateau of St Julien which borders on the north and north east.

The gravelly, very abundant, has pebbles of size sometimes important and allows the good conservation of the heat but also to the roots of the vines to penetrate very deeply in the soil without excessive humidity and without risk of asphyxia.

The subsoil provides a regulated water supply to mature vines but especially its typicity with in this case finer notes and bouquet at the same time.
