Sommelier's Notes

Proposed in the 2015 vintage, Château Fleur Cardinale is a Grand Cru produced on the Saint-Émilion appellation. Since 2001, the estate has been owned by Florence and Dominique Decoster, who has raised it to Grand Cru Classé status in Saint-Émilion.


Made from a blend of 76% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, Château Fleur Cardinale amazes with vintage in vintage and surprises with its powerful and elegant character.


This Château Fleur Cardinale 2015 is adorned with a deep robe of dark red color. Its nose, gourmand and refined releases aromas of ripe fruit (black cherries, black currants, strawberries), accompanied by floral notes. The mouth is generous and expresses a lot of freshness with aromas of ripe fresh fruit and light oak hints. The palate is sweet, medium-bodied and the tannins are silky, of great finesse. The finish is long and balanced.


Culinary Recommendation: To serve 18 C. Good match with a firm-fleshed fish for a perfect match.


Fleur Cardinale presents a deep and dense color, a powerful nose of ripe fruits, with floral notes. From a feminine style , vintage charm with its noble and silky tannins. The finish is long and balanced, offering great aging potential.


The 2012 vintage comes with a deep, concentrated colour. The bouquet is equally delightful, with its intense range of aromas dominated by ripe fruit with floral and spicy overtones. This wine is charmingly balanced and generous on the palate with perfectly smooth tannins. The finish is long and aromatic. In short, a wine with an astonishing personality, embodying both power and elegance.


Culinary Recommendation: To serve 18 C. Good match with a firm-fleshed fish for a perfect match.
