Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another top-notch success, the 2011 (70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) hit 15% natural alcohol. Yields were a low 30 hectoliters per hectare, and the harvest occurred quite late. The result is a dense purple-colored wine with a stunning bouquet of blackberry jam, graphite, charcoal and blueberries. With superb density and purity as well as a multidimensional mouthfeel, this intense St.-Emilion is a sleeper of the vintage, although consumers are catching on to the exquisite quality emerging from La Fleur Cardinale. The 2011 should drink well for 15+ years.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A ripe, fleshy style, with lots of fig and mulled blackberry and blueberry fruit. Good toast and ganache notes thread this together, with a muscular feel on the finish. An overt style, but well done.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Here is a warm, ripe wine with dark tannins. It’s well spiced and fruity, showing crisp black currant fruits.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points

James Suckling
Plenty of good fruit with mineral and blueberry character. Full and chewy with polished tannins and a violet fruit undertones. Well made.
