Critical Acclaim

  • JS94
    James Suckling - "Fantastic aromas of crushed berries, lavender and blueberries. Full-bodied, dense and layered yet always polished and beautiful. Really impressive. Drink in 2020."
  • V94
    Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The 2014 Fleur Cardinale is a dark, sumptuous wine. Dark cherry, plum, rose petal, licorice and sweet spices are all pushed forward. Extravagantly ripe and flamboyant, the 2014 hits all the right notes. As always, Fleur Cardinale shows the more overt, opulent side of Saint-Émilion, and yet all the elements are beautifully balanced. Tasted two times."
  • WS93
    Wine Spectator - "A light ganache edge leads the way, followed by flattering, lightly mulled cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. Offers a toasty finish, but there's enough flesh, grip and focus to pull this along.
    Barrel Sample: 90-93"
  • RP90
    The Wine Advocate - "The 2014 Fleur Cardinale is located in Saint-Etienne-de-Lisse, the vines populating the lieu-dit of Thibaud. it has a powerful, rich and decadent bouquet bestowed with licorice and boysenberry jam. The palate is medium-bodied with muscular tannin, good depth, fine acidity with a structured and quite spicy finish that replicates the showing from barrel. Enjoy this over the next 8-10 years. "

 

Winemaker's Notes

The wine displays a deep, dense-colored hue, while on the nose there are powerful ripe fruit aromas mingling with floral notes. Feminine in style, the wines have a seductive, rich mouth-feel, underpinned by elegant, silky tannins. The finish is long and harmonious, promising very long ageing potential in bottle.These specific tasting characteristics, immediately recognizable to its growing number of followers, are the hallmark of Chateau Fleur Cardinale.

Blend: 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
