The Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé that marked the start of our adventure in 2001.

Château Fleur Cardinale is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé.

The more impatient among you can start discovering it four years after the harvest, but in this case it should be decanted for several hours beforehand.

For those who are more patient, Château Fleur Cardinale is a wine that ages extremely well. It remains fresh and lively after the first decade and will stay in excellent form for the next ten years, acquiring additional maturity. It will then reach a ripe old age, silently resting, waiting in your cellar.

A wine with a deep, concentrated colour.

The bouquet is equally delightful, with its intense range of aromas dominated by ripe fruit with floral and spicy overtones.

This wine is charmingly balanced and generous on the palate with perfectly smooth tannins.

The finish is long and aromatic.

In short, a wine with an astonishing personality, embodying both power and elegance.
