"The 2014 Fleur Cardinale was superb all three times I tasted it. Readers should expect a bold, modern-styled St.-Emilion built on opulence and richness. Black cherries, smoke, tobacco and new leather are all nicely delineated throughout. The late, October harvest and 100% new oak also contribute to the wine's super-ripe, voluptuous personality. The blend is 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon that saw a 5 day cold soak followed by 30-35 days on the skins. "

The Château Fleur Cardinale 2014 is rich and decadent on the lavish nose (as it always is). One sample tasted at the Cercle de Rive Droite was more refined and focused than another sample tasted a day later in Saint Emilion. The palate is full-bodied and mirroring the aromatics, rich and extravagant on the palate. The acidity is well judged and there plenty of weight and presence towards the finish that I would suggest has more tension and precision the recent vintages. It’s an unashamedly modern style of Saint Emilion, but it feels as if it is reading from its own script instead of that of the terroir or the growing season. I prefer the La Croix Cardinale that demonstrates more articulation of its origin. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

A light ganache edge leads the way, followed by flattering, lightly mulled cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. Offers a toasty finish, but there's enough flesh, grip and focus to pull this along.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.
