" The 2018 Will Rock You Hard "
This first edition, which was launched with the Château Fleur Cardinale 2018 vintage, powers us into the high-energy world of hard-rock.
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.
For this first edition, 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.
For this vintage, the knight is clothed in the graphic codes specific to this universe, skillfully integrated into the original coat of arms.
The flames that halo the crest symbolize the energy that emerges when tasting this 2018 vintage. The crest is pierced by the original swords, and is surrounded by skulls: drum sticks are nonchalantly placed in a corner. The knight seems to be fully savoring the moment, wearing a bandana, studded wristbands, and making the horns sign with his hands.
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.
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.
