The wine was made with a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and reached 13.5% alcohol. After sorting, the yields were only 16 hectoliters per hectare. The wine is aging in 100% new French oak for close to 12 months. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2013&wine=Chateau%20Fleur%20Cardinale

Blueberry, blackberry and wet earth. Some dried flowers. Full to medium body, firm and chewy tannins yet polished and fresh. Refined polish to this. Drink in 2018.

It has a pleasant bouquet with ripe blackberry and cassis notes, perhaps just a touch of alcohol giving it lift. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. There is good weight here and decent tension on the finish, though it cuts away a little quickly.
