Perfect Christmas Claret
Date of tasting: 01/12/2012
Location: Old School House, Tittensor, ST12 9HA
"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.
Château La Cardonne 2000 was voted by Decanter Magazine as the Best Cru Bourgeois of that vintage."
We have the last 100 Magnums of the 2000 vintage from the Chateau, which is drinking beautifully now and is a great idea for a Christmas gift at just £37.50 per Magnum.
Come along and try it this weekend while stocks last!
