Sitting proudly on the Medoc’s highest plateau, Château CARDUS has consistently produced the finest MÉDOC quality wines for over three centuries.
Château Cardus is vinified in an elegant fruit-forward style, with a highly aromatic nose of cassis and wild brambles, with peppery notes adding character and exciting the taste buds. The palate is one of enjoyably ripe, velvety tannins with a delightful fruitiness.
Occasionally we produce a limited amount of Château CARDUS "Grande Cuvée Reserve" when mother Nature has provided us with a very special harvest.
With Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%), growing on gravel and limestone-clay based soil respectively, our unique terroir delivers rich and complex wines with minimal intervention, winning awards and recognition around the world.
Our philosophy is somewhat different to many in Bordeaux. In 1990 we built the largest underground cellar in the Médoc, locally known as "The Cathedral", where we have the ability to stock over 10 separate vintages, releasing the wines as they become ready to drink.
Château CARDUS is often awarded the coveted gold medal in international concours, and failing that is always awarded a silver or bronze medal.
Today vintages from 2008 to 2011 are currently being enjoyed in over 40 countries around the world.
