Spicy, structured and with a smoky character, this rich wine will develop power. It has a dense texture, layers of tannins that are integrating with the blackberry fruits. This will be a good wine as it matures. Drink from 2024.
90pts James Suckling
Balance and freshness to this with a mineral, bark and dark berry. Medium body, fine tannins. A little light but well done.
Chateau La Cardonne is vinified in an elegant fruit-forward style, with ripe blackcurrant and plum fruit, balanced by a rich, medium to full-bodied palate, with cedary, pencil-shaving character and smooth silky tannins.
Blend: 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc
