    An opulent and elegant Saint-Emilion red wine

    The Chateau Fleur Cardinale is a Grand Cru Classe produced in the Saint-Emilion appellation. It is made from a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    At tasting, the wine exudes a great smoothness, allied with roundness, opulence and elegance. There are aromas of cassis and raspberry along with some notes of cherry, earth, tobacco leaf and licorice. It is also possible to distinguish a subtle touch of oak. The Chateau Fleur Cardinale 2013 is an attractive, medium-bodied wine, which can be enjoyed now or later until 2023.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The wine, a final blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, produced just over 4,000 cases, which is almost half the winery's normal production. Their brilliant duo of consultants was Jean-Luc Thunevin and Michel Rolland-s assistant Jean-Philippe Fort. Natural alcohol comes in at 13.5% and the wine is soft, round, opulent and elegant with sweet blackcurrant and black raspberry fruit, a hint of cherries, dusty, loamy soil undertones, tobacco leaf, licorice and a touch of background oak. It is medium-bodied, very attractive and can be drunk early on or cellared for 7-10 years. This is, once again, a sleeper of the vintage.
