The 2015 Château Fleur Cardinale is a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 100% new oak. It offers sweet dates and figs tincturing the dark cherry and blueberry fruit on the nose. Heady perhaps, yet there is more delineation here than I have discerned in other vintages. The palate is full-bodied with lush ripe black cherry fruit, blueberry and cassis coming in behind, fanning out towards a plush finish that just needs a little more precision to come through.

This is tight and very focused with gorgeous blackberry, blueberry and stone aromas and flavors. Such purity of fruit here. Full and very, very polished. Compacted and compressed. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Shows very pretty fruit, with boysenberry and raspberry confiture notes rolling along, picking up hints of anise and fruitcake. There’s lush toast and velvety structure, but the energy is good enough to let it all play out harmoniously. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

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. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2032

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. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2030
