Franc-Cardinal are a very good producer of well-priced Bordeaux from the Francs-Côtes de Bordeaux sub-region. Classic, ageworthy, Merlot-dominated wine.
Dark ruby. Country claret – very mouthfilling and accessible. Definitely right bank. Just a little dusty and probably not for technocrats. Has evolved quite fast. Good value.
