A powerful and fruit-forward Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Located on the right bank of Bordeaux, the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Chateau Palais Cardinal enjoys a privileged location in the Saint-Emilion appellation.

The Chateau Palais Cardinal estate includes a beautiful vineyard of 19 hectares, with vines aged 40 years on average and planted in gravel and sandy soils.

The Grand Vin of the estate, the Chateau Palais Cardinal 2018 is made from a blend of Merlot (75%), complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). The vintage is aged for 15 months in new oak barrels. Produced under the guidance of the talented oenologist Thomas Duclos, the Chateau Palais Cardinal 2018 is a very fine vintage from this property, a wine that is powerful and fruit-forward, with a delicate woody quality and great finesse.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 73% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Palais Cardinal is deep garnet-purple colored and a little mute to begin, with notions of tar, damp earth and charcoal over a core of black cherry compote and wild blueberries plus a hint of wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied with a firm, chewy texture, it has loads of freshness and a grippy finish.
