Château Fleur Cardinale 2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fresh, fruity, elegant, complex and offers power, generosity/gourmandize, a beautiful finesse of the structure, a very beautiful finesse of the grain (Silk !), a very beautiful precision as well as a fine concentration. It reveals notes of blackberry, strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with fine touches of flowers, nutmeg/spices, fine mineral hints as well as very fine hints of violet/flowers (in the background) and very discreet toasted hints/spices. The palate is beautifully juicy, gourmand, well-balanced, currently slightly on the hold and offers a mineral frame, freshness, a very beautiful finesse, complexity, a very beautiful finesse of the grain, fresh/crunchy/juicy fruit as well as suavity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy cassis, juicy blackberry and small notes of juicy/fresh raspberry associated with fine touches of toasted, caramelized oak, toasted almond and a very discreet hint of flowers. Tannins are fine, elegant and structuring. Beautiful persistence. There are fine hints of chocolate, oak and caramelization on the persistence (bring gourmandize). Great finesse !
