A 2005 Chateau Caronne Ste. Gemme is the Wonderbra of wine. Once unhooked and able to breath, no time is wasted unfolding into a deliriously lucid fluency of cassis, cocoa berry and Early-Girl tomato. On the dry scale, this wine is a desert and loaded with harmonious tannins that swathe the tongue and the roof of your mouth; licking a velvet curtain might just get you the same mouthfeel. Meanwhile, this wine provides lift and enhancement and pushes up like all get out. One touch from a talented hand is all it takes to release this cultural lexicon ‘look me in the eye and tell me that you love me’ in that billboard sort of way. Although looks can be deceiving, for less then $20 a squeeze, who’s complaining?
