Wine Spectator:

89-92 points Wine Spectator Pretty blueberry and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Lots going on. Big wine for the appellation. Best in a long time from here. (Web-2010)

Product Description:

"Sitting proudly on the Medoc's highest plateau, our former Lafite-Rothschild vineyard, Château LA CARDONNE has consistently produced the finest Médoc Cru Bourgeois wines for over three centuries. Château 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. With Cabernet Sauvignon (45%) and Cabernet Franc (5%), growing on gravel based soil and Merlot (50%), growing on limestone-clay based soil, our unique terroir delivers rich and complex wines with minimal intervention, winning awards and recognition around the world. Our philosophy is somewhat different to many in Bordeaux. In 1990 we built the largest underground cellar in the region, locally known as "The Cathedral", where we have the ability to stock over 10 separate vintages, releasing the wines as they become ready to drink."
