Chateau La Cardonne Médoc 2012 375ml
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau La Cardonne|
Wine EnthusiastThis is already an accessible wine, with ripe black fruits and a juicy character. It comes from the highest point of the Médoc (a mere 100 feet above sea level) on deep gravel soil, giving both texture and richness. Berry notes dominate, supported by firm tannins and ample acidity, which will allow the wine to age well. Drink now-2022.
Wine SpectatorFeatures dark coating of singed cedar and bay around a modest core of damson plum and cherry fruit. Not overly austere on the finish, but lacks depth overall. Drink now. 11,945 cases made.
