CHÂTEAU FLEUR CARDINALE
2015 Grand Cru Saint Emilion
|Sub-district||Saint Emilion & Satellites|
Plush and full of sweet puddingy middle. Rather yummy 'gobs of fruit' style. Structure and fine tannin are here, but it's the glossy fruit that matters. Rating: 89-90 L&S (Apr 2016)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Super rich baking spices across ripe dark plums in a very suave and attractively styled nose. The palate has incredible depth and succulently seductive, fleshy plum flavors. Wow. Drinking range: 2022 - Rating: 96 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Feb 2018)
Blackish crimson. Very sweet - too sweet? Smells of fermented blackcurrant pastilles. Vieux jeu! But there is a bit of freshness here. Some liveliness and drive on top of pretty ripe fruit. Drinking range: 2022 - 2032 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2016)
One of the latest to harvest in St-Emilion. Rich, plush and modern – oozes fruit. Tannins are ripe and firm with chocolate notes from the oak. Successful in that seductive, come-hither style. Drinking range: 2020 - 2030 Rating: 91 James Lawther MW, decanter.com (Apr 2016)
