    Winemaker Notes

    Medium bodied with a well balanced finish. The high percentage of Merlot and judicious oak aging makes Château La Cardonne both elegant and approachable at an early age. However, it reveals its full richness between four to ten years after the harvest.

    Wine-growing at Chateau La Cardonne began in the 17th century, when its gravel and clay-limestone soils in the northern Medoc commune of Blaignan, five miles beyond the St-Estephe appellation, was first planted with vines. After many years of ownership by Chateau Lafite-Rothschild, who completely restructured the vineyard in the 1980's, the estate was fortunately acquired by the Charloux family in 1990. Their first step was to install state-of-the-art winemaking facilities, and build the largest underground bottle cellar in the Médoc, locally known as "The Cathedral".

    The vineyard is planted with a grape mix of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, and the vines average 30 years of age. After vinification specially adjusted to suit each varietal, Chateau La Cardonne wines are blended and aged for 12-14 months in French oak barrels, after which they are bottle-aged in the chateau's spectacular underground cellar. Only when our customers and we agree that a vintage is ready to be enjoyed, do we release the wines, sending them to over 40 countries around the world.
