Château La Cardonne 2016 – Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

Château La Cardonne 2016 – Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

The nose is slightly closed, finely spicy and offers a fine power (in the background). It reveals notes of blackberry, crunchy strawberry and more slightly ripe wild raspberry associated with fine hints of violet, nutmeg as well as a very discreet hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is mineral, structured and offers freshness, tension as a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fresh blackberry, crunchy strawberry and more slightly raspberry/crunchy small berries associated with a fine hint of violet, toasted, cardamom and oak. Tannins are very discreetly firm. There is an imperceptible hint of bitterness and hazelnut on the persistence.
