Chateau Franc-Cardinal Bordeaux 2020

Chateau Franc-Cardinal Bordeaux 2020

Wines from Bordeaux are some of the most loved and esteemed in the world. One of our personal favorites is the wine made at Chateau Franc-Cardinal. A petite chateau and operated by the Holzberg family, there are a lot of things to love about the Chateau. The winery is in the final stages of certifying as an organic wine producer, meaning they focus on the purity of the delicious fruit flavors. It is a family-run business, full of passion, something we always respect and admire. What's the number one thing to love about Chateau Franc-Cardinal? The unbelievably delicious wine.

 A blend of Merlot (72%), Cabernet Franc (24%), and Malbec (4%), the palate is sheer elegance. Plum and prune notes lead on the fruit, balanced by a slight smokiness and even a hint of almond. It is simply unbeatable.

From esteemed critic Jancis Robinson, "Perfumed, transparent and delicate. Extraordinarily silky, diaphanous tannis for a bordeaux, let alone for such a young wine. I think I may have uynderestimated the rare, subtle, quiet beuty of this wine from a not especially glamorous Bordeaux appellation. It has grace and perfume that seems more akin to burgundy and Barolo than bordeaux. It is fine-boned, moving with an almost weightless silence; a glide of sous-bois bitter red-berry fruit, wild strawberries, soft breath of fresh cigar and truffle lifted from under autumn leaves and dark forest loam. Exquisitely fresh, understated, and I find myself coming back, again and again, to the word graceful."
