Fleur-Cardinale-St-Emilion-2016

Fleur Cardinale, (St. Emilion), 2016

2016 Bordeaux Future
“The 2016 Fleur Cardinale is a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new oak. Now this is a more restrained take for Fleur Cardinale, very pure and refined with red cherries, wild strawberry and light cassis notes, the oak neatly integrated (better than the 2015). The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry, a fine bead of acidity, crisp and structured with a tightly wound finish that suggests that it will need four or five years in bottle. I suspect this will surpass the 2015 Fleur Cardinale – this is very fine.” -Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (92-94 Points)
Expected Arrival: Autumn 2019
