BRANDChâteau Croix Cardinale
Extremely ripe scent with hints of plum and boysenberry and a sniff of vanilla. Most striking, however, are the hefty chocolate notes. They reappear in the taste, which is stuffed with sweet, dark berries. Pure velvet and cream chocolate in the mouth - and right on the edge for jammy, but the acid and tannins save the wine at the finish line.
A voluptuous vintage, which has been drinkable almost from the beginning and still is for most Bordeaux.
