Nose of black fruit, sweet pipe tobacco, and purple flowers. Sweet black fruit, tobacco, and medium, well integrated tannins on the palate. Long finish. An earlier drinking style, but could also age for many years. Decanted 3 hours. 4/22/9/5/4+50=94 pts

Black cherries, blueberries, vanilla, oak, dried sage, dark chocolate, full-bodied Merlot-based, right bank Bordeaux. Smooth tannins and great versatility. Vintage 2016. So delish! Oui, s'il vous plaît! . . #chateaufleurcardinale #merlotblend #rightbankbordeaux #stemiliongrandcru #oldworldwine

Sweet smokey tobacco, with dark fruits, and lingering musty plum. Nice, and opens better over time.

Binging on Bordeaux these days. This wine is exquisite. Ripe blackberry and cassis to the max with subtle notes of spice on the palate. Ripe and more approachable than the 2015s but less complex. I drank them side-by-side. Both are excellent, but with different personalities. The 2016 is excellent now but will improve with age. The 2015s absolutely need cellaring - they are beautiful, but need to develop. 2016 vintage on Sep 17, 2019
