This wine cannot be described in fine enough terms. Le Landot is a "garage wine" from Château Caronne St Gemme, a micro vinification drawing out the quintessence of the terroir from which it comes. As in every year, we have decided to set aside for you, for your year end festivities, this wine that is in a class of its own. Landot 2007 covers all the superlatives: great finesse, great length, great definition. Concentrated and elegant, the particular nature of its vinification gives it something extra: a certain pizzaz, a seductive, sensual side. Drink the wine today, and you'll be amazed by its intensity. Lay it down for another 15 years and you're in for an exceptional drinking experience.

Dating from 1648, Le Landot is a Château Caronne Sainte Gemme single vineyard plot bordering the south of Saint-Julien. It lies on an ancient spot. "Carona" is said to come from the Gallic for "little stream", and Sainte-Gemme is derived from Saint Jaime or James as shown in maps from the 18th Century. The property was purchased in 1900 by Emile Borie, the grandfather of Jean Nony-Borie who has managed it since 1943, now assisted by his nephew François Nony, who will eventually take over.
