TRADITION MEETS MODERNITY

For more than three centuries, Château La Cardonne has proudly sat on the highest plateau of the Médoc. From our front steps, we enjoy a panoramic view of the distant horizon, from the Landes forest to the west, to the limestone cliffs on the right side of the Gironde river.

Our wines bear fruit of a unique terroir that generously offers both authenticity and complexity. A true respect for the vines and the soil, coupled with the alliance of tradition and modernity in how we work, and our constant search for optimising what mother nature delivers, allow us to consistently produce the most enjoyable wine that is true to it’s origins.

We’re fortunate to have a team of women and men with years of experience. They are dedicated and meticulous in their work, and although primarily focused on the present, they are always projecting well into future. It’s an important aspect of our work, when the wines we are producing today will improve with age, and may reach their pinnacle in 10-20 years time.

VINTAGES

An Inimitable style
The reason Château La Cardonne has survived for centuries centuries is simply due to an exceptional terroir cared for from one generation to another. From the first winemakers to those of today, all worked to reveal something magical in each glass. In our extraordinary underground cellar, each bottle develops it’s aromas, slowly over time before being delivered to the world.

A Feminine Touch
Since joining the vineyard in 2000, Magali Guyon (former winemaker at Château Lynch-Bages) has passionately delivered some of the most memorable vintages in living memory. Marrying extreme precision and a very personal vision, and with the most technologically advanced tools at her disposal, she ensures the purest expression of our terroir. Her constant search for finesse and elegance delivers harmonious and perfectly balanced wines that continue to stand the test of time.

VINEYARD

“At Château La Cardonne, the terroir is not only a marriage of soil and a climate, there are the gentle slopes offering themselves to the sun, the hare that occasionally leaps over the vine, the birds who nest, the bees who come in search of wild flowers, and the sea of clouds that float past us in the early morning. It is our intimate knowledge of, and our dialogue with these surroundings, which provides the authenticity of our wines. “
