The First Wine of the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé Château Fleur Cardinale offers a remarkable expression of the Saint-Émilion terroir, an emblematic appellation on the Right Bank of Bordeaux.
Château La Fleur Cardinale has a 22.5-hectare vineyard planted in a veritable mosaic of 7 different clay and limestone soils and subsoils.
2019 was not an easy year for Château Fleur Cardinale. The vines faced great contrasts in temperature. However, the summer was beautiful, allowing the fruit to develop perfectly and under impeccable sanitary conditions. A few light showers in September helped revitalise the ripening process of the vine, whose fruit reached the perfect maturity in time for the harvest.
Harvest from October 2 to 14. 3 sorts, one of which by density. Fermentation for 28 days in double-layered tapered stainless steel vats. Cold pre-fermentation maceration. Gravity-fed pour-overs / R’Pulse.
Ageing for 13 to 15 months in new French oak barrels.
