CHATEAU LA CARDONNE



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.
