Château Fleur Cardinale has thrilled wine lovers in every vintage, achieving that much sought-after quality of power combined with elegance. The wines display a deep, dense-coloured hue, while on the nose there are powerful ripe fruit aromas mingling with floral notes. Feminine in style, the wines have a seductive, rich mouth-feel, underpinned by elegant, silky tannins. The finish is long and harmonious, promising very long ageing potential in bottle. These specific tasting characteristics, immediately recognisable to its growing number of followers, are the hallmark of Château Fleur Cardinale.

Wine SpectatorWell-endowed, with dark plum and blackberry puree notes forming the core, while a hefty dose of licorice-accented toast frames everything. Lush mouthfeel, though there is some energy rippling underneath. The fruit is copious and alluring, though this leans to the power/extraction side of the ledger. (Barrel Tasting)
