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.
Wine lovers will be able to relate the energy of the label’s flamboyant design to the powerful, fresh and intensely aromatic palate of the vintage.
All the technical elements specific to the 2018 vintage are available on the page dedicated to Château Fleur Cardinale 2018.
- Blending : 74% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon
A deep, dense colour displaying ruby glints. The nose is today incredibly expressive with ripe black fruits coming to the fore (black cherries and fresh plums) together with sweet spices. The entry on the palate is clean and bright with a real explosion of fruit flavours giving the sensation of a very exuberant vintage. The up-front juiciness on the palate in no way conceals the underlying sensation of freshness. The lingering flavours give to the wine as a whole an impression of great drinkability. The bottle just needs to be uncorked a few hours beforehand to enable full enjoyment of the hedonistic character of this vintage.
