Dominique and Florence Decoster also had a clear idea of the wine they wanted to make: one which mirrors their love of the Saint-Emilion region and above all one which expresses the terroir of the vineyard of Château Fleur Cardinale.
Château Fleur Cardinale has since thrilled wine lovers in every vintage, achieving that much sought-after quality of power combined with elegance.
The wines display a deep, dense-coloured hue, while on the nose there are powerful ripe fruit aromas mingling with floral notes. Feminine in style, the wines have a seductive, rich mouth-feel, underpinned by elegant, silky tannins. The finish is long and harmonious, promising very long ageing potential in bottle.
These specific tasting characteristics, immediately recognisable to its growing number of followers, are the hallmark of Château Fleur Cardinale.
