Château Croix Cardinale St Emilion 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Brand||Château Croix Cardinale|
A fresh, pure style, with a lovely beam of cassis, bitter cherry and raspberry puree flavors streaming through, lined with elegant floral and chalky mineral accents along the way, resulting in polished edges that show a touch of tension through the middle. Best from 2021 through 2031.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Croix Cardinale gives up bold notes of baked black cherries, red and black plums, garrigue and tilled soil with a hint of mossy bark. The palate is medium to full-bodied, plush and pure with a lovely peppery edge to the long finish.
