Tasting Notes:
  • Colour: Deep in color the wine offers round, luscious textures that allow the full weight of the fruits to come though on your palate.
  • Nose: Concentrated, with waves of licorice, smoke, dark chocolate, black cherries and espresso, the wine is rich, fat and juicy, ending with a blast of opulent chocolate-covered plums, coffee bean and black cherry.
  • Finish: It’s the texture that reels you in and rolls you over. A lavish, satiny cloud of luscious fruits, flowers, coffee bean, juicy plum liqueur and sweet black cherries coated in chocolate keep you involved with this wine.
Description

FLEUR CARDINALE 2016

FLEUR CARDINALE 2016. Chateau Fleur Cardinale is better with at least 6-9 years of aging in good vintages. Young vintages can be decanted for 1-2 hours, or more.

This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment. Chateau Fleur Cardinale offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 8-22 years of age after the vintage.

Chateau Fleur Cardinale is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift.

Chateau Fleur Cardinale is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Fleur Cardinale is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.

Secret de Cardinale was an early effort at producing a wine from 100% Merlot. The wine came from their clay and limestone soils and was aged in 100% new, French oak barrels for an average of 13 months. The final vintage for Secret de Cardinal was the 2012. The wine is no longer being produced. The vines are now being used for the production of Fleur Cardinale.
