Château la Cardonne

Château La Cardonne wines are kept for 12 months in oak casks renewed every two years, then aged in bottles in the Château's underground cellars. The bottles are presented in the purest manner of the Medoc Grands Crus: "tradition lourde" bottle, classical label and a prime quality 49 mm long, natural cork.

Wine Spectator

Shows coffee, blackberry and hints of dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, with fine, silky tannins and a pretty core of fruit on the finish. Balanced. Best after 2009.

Score: 87. —James Suckling, March 31, 2008.

Wine Advocate

Space limitations did not allow complete tasting notes for this Cru Bourgeois, but 2005 is the finest vintage for these wines since 1982. The range of scores for these wines should give readers an idea of just how consistent this vintage is at this level. Given the style of the vintage, most of these wines should be accessible young yet evolve for a decade or more because of their concentration and tannic structure.

Score: 85-87. —Robert Parker, April 2006.
