James Suckling 92-93
Fine tannins with lots of purple fruit and blackberries. Creamy and beautiful. Medium-bodied. Poised and focused.
The 2020 Croix Cardinale is a soft, easygoing wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Ripe dark cherry, spice, leather and mint all open in the glass. This plush, juicy Saint-Émilion certainly offers a good deal of charm. All it needs is a bit of time to come together and fully assimilate its oak. Tasted two times.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2030
