Chateau La Fleur Cardinale, Saint Emilion 2014
The 2014 Fleur Cardinale is powerful, rich and decadent bouquet bestowed with licorice and boysenberry jam.
The palate is medium-bodied with muscular tannin, good depth, fine acidity with a structured and quite spicy finish that replicates the showing from barrel. Enjoy this over the next 8-10 years.

The appellation of Saint-Emilion has benefitof 75% of Merlot, 20% of Cabernet Franc and 5% of Cabernet Sauvignon giving structure and the touch of freshness to this Fleur Cardinale 2014.
The creamy fruity taste offers a large density of aromas and depth. After detecting the spicy character while swirling, the attack on the mouth enhances the flavours. Then, the wine turns into a stronger character, which is smooth and structured without lacking density.
This charismatic wine has got length, weight and freshness thanks to the brightness and exactness of its tannins. Nothing is missing in this Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Emilion. Recommended!
