Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau La Fleur Cardinale Grand Cru Classe 2019

97–98
/100

Lobenberg: Die extrem hohe Reife von Fleur Cardinale haromiert mit der wahnsinnigen Frische von 2019 ziemlich grandios. Pikant, voluminös und elegant zugleich, fast ganz großer Stoff. Wow. 97-98/100

Suckling über: Chateau La Fleur Cardinale Grand Cru Classe

-- Suckling: This is a wine that has a broad brush of tannins that give energy and subtle texture to the palate. Beautiful blue fruit and terracotta. Really fine-grained tannins. Beautiful, sweet fruit at the finish. One of the best I have had from here. Really want to drink it. 76% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 4% cabernet sauvignon. 95-96/100

Decanter über: Chateau La Fleur Cardinale Grand Cru Classe

-- Decanter: Really smoky, coffee bean aromas on the nose with ripe blackcurrants. Great texture and flavour here, it's full of herbs and liquorice-tinged black fruits (cherries mainly) but really well integrated so that no one aspect sticks out. Tannins are super fine and smooth and the acidity is well balanced carrying the density of the fruit as well as the freshness. It's a big shouldered wine there's no question, power but also poise. Harmonious, charming and elegant. A very complete wine that is balanced with generous fruit, tannins, acidity and mineral freshness. Feels well handled and just excellently executed. Has a real purity to it with sculpting and refinement. Great stuff and still so juicy and appealing at the end. A top buy. Drinking window: 2027-2045. 95/100

Jane Anson über: Chateau La Fleur Cardinale Grand Cru Classe

-- Jane Anson: Though barely getting going at two years old, you already see what a great wine this is. Juicy plum and damson fruits, shot through with richly textured raspberry coulis, all kissed by smoky oak without going over the top. A deft mix of tension and balance. One of my real stars of the vintage in St Emilion, and an upscore from En Primeur. 100% new oak, with every case sold seeing one tree planted, with the hope of planting 10,000 trees in total. 95/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau La Fleur Cardinale Grand Cru Classe

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Stunning stuff, the 2019 Château Fleur Cardinale might be the finest vintage of this wine I've tasted. Deep purple-hued, with awesome notes of ripe red and black currants, tobacco, chocolate, and spring flowers, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a plush, seamless texture, polished tannins, and a great finish. This is a killer 2019 that shows the class, balance, and purity of the vintage while backing it up with depth and richness. Tasted twice. 93-95/100

Galloni über: Chateau La Fleur Cardinale Grand Cru Classe

-- Galloni: The 2019 Fleur Cardinale is ripe, bold and luscious, with striking depth and resonance. Inky dark fruit, graphite, lavender, spice, menthol and blueberry jam all race out of the glass. Even with all of its obvious intensity, the 2019 has terrific freshness and vibrancy. In 2019, the blend is 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasted two times. 93-95/100

Parker über: Chateau La Fleur Cardinale Grand Cru Classe

-- Parker: Deep purple-black in color, the 2019 Fleur Cardinale exudes opulent scents of cinnamon stick, star anise, plum preserves and chocolate-covered cherries with a seducing undercurrent of lilacs, mulberries, allspice and black truffles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is already tantalizingly delicious, revealing layer upon layer of black fruits, exotic spices and earthy sparks, finishing with great freshness and depth. This year's blend is 76% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. 93-95/100

Mein Winzer

La Fleur Cardinale

Chateau La Fleur Cardinale gehört zu einem der absoluten Senkrechtstarter der Appellation St. Emilion. Noch Anfang der 80er Jahre des letzten Jahrhunderts wurde die gesamte Produktion als Fassware verkauft. Das änderte sich, als das Weingut in den Besitz der Familie Asseo überging.
