Chateau La Cardonne Médoc 2018
|France, Bordeaux, Medoc
|Chateau La Cardonne
This wine offers rich tannins and dense black fruits in equal proportions. The structure, with the dry core, shows great promise and the wine is definitely worth aging. Drink from 2024.
The 2018 La Cardonne was tasted twice, one bottle a little muted but showing promise on the finish. The second was given more aeration and that was repaid. It offers attractive blackberry, briar, cedar and light marine aromas on a well-defined nose that is very focused and intense. The fresh, vibrant palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, well-pitched acidity and an almost citrus-like finish. Very harmonious and silky-smooth in texture. This is an outstanding Cru Bourgeois Superieur. Bravo!
