Tradition and Modernity - Château Cardus

Wine-growing at Château Cardus began in the 17th century, when its gravel and clay-limestone soils in the northern Médoc commune of Blaignan, five miles beyond the St-Estephe appellation, was first planted with vines.

The vineyard is planted with a grape mix of 50 % Merlot and 50 % Cabernet Sauvignon, and the vines average 15 years of age.

After vinification specially adjusted to suit each varietal, Château Cardus wines are blended and aged for 18 months in stainless steel vats, 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.
