Quality and sustainability are the primary factors in all vineyard decisions. Over the past decade, the Nonys have invested considerable resources to give longtime Enologist Olivier Dauga and Cellermaster Bruno Guyomar the state-of-the-art winery, equipment, and barrel chais necessary to produce these top level clarets, yet Caronne and Labat wines remain among the best values in Bordeaux today.

Wine SpectatorOffers a dark, plush feel, with roasted fig and warm currant preserves notes flowing over dark tobacco and bittersweet cocoa flavors, followed by a solid, tarry-edged finish. Drink now through 2019. 18,750 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThis property seems to get relatively good representation in the United States. The 2009 is made from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot. Attractive loamy soil notes intermixed with black currants and mulberries jump from the glass of this fruity, solidly constructed, mid-weight wine. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
