« The 2018 Will Rock You Hard »
At Château Fleur Cardinale, the character of our wine is all about contrast. Each vintage offers naturally powerful and generous wines that are counterbalanced by fine, elegant tannins; and while the mouth-feel is suave and velvety, the palate is underpinned by lovely freshness.
It is in this spirit that Caroline and Ludovic Decoster imagined a series of collector’s editions which each year will display a new take on the Château Fleur Cardinale label reflecting different contrasting themes, while preserving the identity codes of the original label.
A contrasting label, for a wine of contrasts
This first edition, which was launched with the Château Fleur Cardinale 2018 vintage, powers us into the high-energy world of hard-rock. Fans of hard-rock music will be amused to find the graphics specific to this world, skilfully integrated into the original coat of arms. As for wine lovers, they’ll be able to connect the energy given off in the flamboyant graphics of the label with the powerful, fresh and intense flavours of the vintage.
This collector’s edition adheres to the DNA of Château Fleur Cardinale. We want the dynamism and boldness of our ideas to showcase in an enthusiastic and original way the very high quality of our wines.
“Rock and wine are similar in that they both capture for posterity a concoction of ingredients inspired by a story that commands attention and releases emotions.”
Only 1500 magnums, in screen-printed wooden case
Only 1,500 magnums have been packaged with this unique, hand-numbered label, packed in especially screen-printed single wooden cases.
This project is a collaborative work with partners from Bordeaux :
- Lisa Wieland for the graphic design,
- The Multi-Color Corporation printing company for the label,
- And Les Etablissements Pierre Goujon (Groupe Caisserie Bordelaise) for the wooden case.
