Chateau La Cardonne Médoc 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau La Cardonne|
Deep garnet red, with purple highlights. The bouquet mingles black fruits (blueberry, blackberry), spices and perfectly integrated wood. The palate is rich, round and fresh. Impressive and yet fine tannins, very promising. A long finish with vanilla aroma.
This 108-acre property has produced a wine with rich black-fruit flavors and dense tannins. It has a firm structure as well as a strong juicy element. It's ripe, full and likely to age well. Drink from 2023.
The 2016 La Cardonne has a lively bouquet with red and black fruit, cedar and light mint aromas, quite Pauillac in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, vibrant and quite precise with well judged oak towards the persistent finish. Looking for a Cru Bourgeois in the Médoc? Look no further. Superb. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London.
