Reviews for this vintage

FORBES, TOM MULLEN

94-95
Bourbon biscuits and mint crisp aromas, as well as plumbs, blackberries and a hint of mandarin acidity. This second wine could be mistaken as a first from many other châteaux. In the mouth, deep black fruit, succulent acidity, well balanced with generous flavors of After Eight mints, treacle and raspberries. March 2022

JAMES SUCKLING

91
Aromas of blackberries, dark plums, bark and baking spices. Medium-bodied with velvety tannins and fresh acidity. A juicy red with a silky texture and an elegant, flavorful finish. 78% merlot and 22% cabernet franc. Drink after 2023. February 2022

JANE ANSON

91
Bright fruit aromatics, with the palate immediately welcoming you in with smooth tannins, all in balance and not trying too hard. Rosehips and raspberries kick things off with an emphasis on ripe, juicy and fresh summer fruits. This is the second wine of Fleur Cardinale, in its 2nd vintage, and brings much of the same personality and polish. October 2021

THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER, JEFF LEVE

90
Dark chocolate covered cherries and plums on the nose and in the forward, soft, round, sweet, fruit filled palate are what you find here. You can drink this on release. March 2022
