CDG Lounge Access

Hello everyone.
I'll be on AF#229 from EZE to CDG on an award ticket in J.
I'll be connecting onto AF#1832 from CDG to AH on a paid ticket in Y.
Each itinerary is on a separate PNR.
Currently I'm AR Gold/SkyTeam Elite (I know that status alone will not allow lounge access).
Will I have access to any lounge at CDG arriving in J?
Any particular conditions AF has and I should be aware of?
Based on the above, what's the best lounge to try and access?
I'm new to Skyteam, and more familiar with AA/Oneworld, where I would be allowed lounge access (arriving/connecting in J to Y, even if in different PNR).
Thanks in advance for amy feedback!

Because AR Gold is ST Elite, not Elite+
STE+ get lounge access, not STE

Ah. I had equated AR Gold with STE+ in my mind.

Cheeky of AR to name their basic/entry level tier Gold !

Long haul AF J passengers have access to the arrival lounge in terminal 2C. You could certainly try your luck at 2F (from which AF flight to ATH departs) to access the lounge and have a shower instead of the 2C lounge that is very inconvenient for transit passengers.
