Chateau La Cardonne Médoc 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau La Cardonne|
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.
Good cherry and plum fruit has a juicy edge, with hints of anise, tobacco and warm earth filling in through the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2023. 14,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
