75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
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 twice. (2/6/2017)
Fantastic aromas of crushed berries, lavender and blueberries. Full-bodied, dense and layered yet always polished and beautiful. Really impressive. Drink from 2020. (2/16/2017)
Dark purplish crimson with black core. Very ripe and perfumed dark fruit – there’s cherry and vanilla and even a slight floral note. Flattering first impression. Then lovely deep but supple tannins on the palate, very primary and full of energy yet finishes with dry elegance. Drink 2018 – 2026.
