A good start to the week

We’ve arrived at Caronne Ste Gemme, our home in the Medoc for the early part of the week. Francois served 2000 with dinner – it’s a delicious mix of ripe fruit and attractive freshness. Let’s hope the 2009s age as well.

    What are your thoughts on the ’09 Caronne? Francois kindly sent us a barrel sample which we opened in Dorchester on Saturady. I found it quite hard to judge such a young wine. It did seem to have more weight and a riper profile than the ’04. Agree with you that the ’00 is delicious at the moment. Sadly down to my last bottle at home! looking forward to the ’05 Caronne arriving in store. Quite soon I hear?

    The 09 will be delicious. Francois says its between 2000 and 2005 in style, which must be a good thing.

    The 05 is imminent (it has already shipped I think).
