Chateau Fleur Cardinale, 2008, Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux
This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe is a 91 pointer by RP comprising 70% merlot, 20% cabernet franc, and 10% cabernet sauvignon. This dark purple wine is medium to full bodied, concentrated, has lush texture with a nice bite/chew, silky smooth with rounded and elegant tannins, balanced and seductive. I enjoyed the lengthy finish with a nice lingering aftertaste of anise, coffee, chocolate, licorice and plum. The slight oaky taste offers character. This wine also offers beautiful perfume of blackberries, earth and flowers. Drinking very well now right up to 2020.
