CHATEAU FLEUR CARDINALE Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2015
Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting notes: The intense and deep red coloured wine offers a remarkable ripeness on the nose. The latter is dominated by macerated fresh and vibrant black fruits. It reveals an aromatic palette with good depth. On the palate, the 2015 Chateau La Fleur Cardinale is ample, fleshy and has a silky texture.
About the winery: In 2001, Florence and Dominique Decoster bought Château Fleur Cardinale, located at the east of Saint-Emilion, on one of the highest points of the appellation. Thanks to constant investments, both in the vineyard and in the winery, Chateau Fleur Cardinale quickly became a blue chip of the appellation. Noted for its consistent quality, Château Fleur Cardinale was promoted to the rank of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé in 2006 and confirmed in 2012. In 2011, Florence and Dominique Decoster acquired Château Croix Cardinale Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, next to Château Fleur Cardinale.
