2016 Du Cartillon (Haut-Medoc)

Ch du Cartillon is a Cru Bourgeois that comes from Lamarque, a village in the gap between Margaux and St-Julien and close to Moulis, so in decent Haut-Medoc territory. The vines are planted in quite deep gravel and sand and they comprise mostly Merlot, a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon, but unusually even now in Bordeaux, 25% Petit Verdot.

Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2016 du Cartillon has a discrete nose that demands some aeration, gently unfolding with blackberry, undergrowth, mint and a touch of bay leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good depth, gentle in grip with well integrated new oak. I like the body and density on display towards the finish, all without denuding the precision. Excellent. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London. 91 points
