Château Fleur Cardinale Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

$64.99

...Full-bodied in texture, it offers up loads of blueberry, blackberry and raspberry fruit intermixed with some cedar, vanilla and a touch of spring flowers. Impressively built, with good acidity and light tannin, this is a superb example of wine... It’s right up there with their brilliant 2005. Robert Parker

Drank 4/12/20. Excellent with lamb chops and a red wine sauce. Plum sauce, blackberry, raspberry, spearmint, soil, and a bit of petrol are easily coaxed from the glass. Flavors of plum sauce, raspberry coulis, tobacco, and mint are backed by medium + well integrated tannin. Drink now and over the next 5-10 years. 4/22/9/5/4 +50 = 94 pts.

If tasted blind I’d think it was a top echelon Napa cab.... big fruit with balanced tannins and long finish

Decant this! Not much initial nose. Opens up after an hour and smells like a bowl of berries. Tannins already fairly smooth, and decently long finish. Should go at least another 5+'years but I would drink now for the fruit. Quite good.

Love the sensation and complexity! The smell is enchantingly oaky. The taste is strong and rounded! I haven't had something like this for a long time...
