Château Palais Cardinal Saint-Émilion Grand Cru red 2020. NEW VINTAGE.
73% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Cabernet Franc blend.
Splendid nose, vibrant lifted fruit, sexy oak, intense, layered, and decadent, smoke and jam notes, sizzling bacon smokiness, while the palate is big, juicy, and ripe, great tannin that’s firm and fine, long and mouth-filling. Given the quality, this is extremely good value for money.
