Château Fleur Cardinale 2007

All Vintages of this wine

A generous Saint-Emilion red wine

The Château Fleur Cardinale is a Grand Cru Classé red wine produced in the Saint-Emilion appellation. The 18-hectare vineyard has vines with an average age of 35-years-old growing in clay-limestone soil. The blend is 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Château Fleur Cardinale makes the most of its terroir. The wine has a deep, dense red colour. The nose is full of ripe fruit and some light floral notes. The charming and generous palate offers silky tannins that are fit for nobility. The finish offers a lovely length and an overall good balance. This wine has excellent cellaring potential.

This tasting note aims to describe the general style of the wine, so this commentary can vary as the wine evolves with age.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A strong effort from this well-run estate, the 2007 Fleur Cardinale may turn out to be as good as the 2009, which is a slightly more ruggedly constructed and bigger wine, but not necessarily better. The 2007 is a mid-weight blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields were only 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine hit 13.5% natural alcohol. Sweet black currant and blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower, graphite, and subtle wood aromas are followed by an intense, richly fruity St.-Emilion with low acids, sweet, ripe tannins, and a lush, heady finish. It should drink beautifully for a decade or more.
