2010 La Cardonne, Médoc

SKU #1315377 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A superb blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, the 2010 from this well-known property has performed as well as I’ve ever tasted. A sleeper of the vintage, this endearing style of wine has copious quantities of ripe black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with hints of forest floor, licorice and subtle background oak. It is medium to full-bodied, rich, textured and, overall, an enormously seductive style of wine to drink over the next 7-8 years. Drink through 2021. (RP)  (2/2013)

This dark and punchy wine has a deep core of purple fruit that shows off the power of the vintage. The firm and intense middle of blackberry leads to a finish of very ripe tannins that will allow further ageing although those with a decanter need wait no further.

Once a wine in the lafite stable of fine wines (notice the label), this property did exceptionally well in 2010. Big and powerful wine with lots of red berry fruit. Decant two hours before serving tonight or age it a year or so.
Drink from 2018 to 2028

La Cardonne is ready to drink, with a lovely expanse on the palate and a fine but firm tannin. With a bright acidity, this wine also shows potential for cellaring. Notes of dried blueberry, blackberry, bell pepper and allspice make for a heady and satisfying experience.
