Château Fleur Cardinale Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Opulent, rich, concentrated and plush, the chocolate covered plums, cherries and truffle notes with that fresh kick of boysneberry are hard to resist.

    ROBERT PARKER - The Wine Advocate CHATEAU FLEUR CARDINALE 94/100 A good value among over-achieving St-Emilion estates is Fleur Cardinale’s 2009. Composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, some of the abrasive tannins noticeable early on in this big wine (14,5% alcohol) are now sweeter and better integrated. Made from tiny yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare, this is a concentrated, rich effort revealing lots of black cherry and black currant fruit as well as a fragant, firm, full-bodied personality. It should be at its best between 2016 and 2030 SECRET DE CARDINALE 94+/100
