93 WA 90 WS
93 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: This gorgeous 2011 continues the succession of impressive wines made by this estate since it was acquired by the Decoster family. Beautiful black raspberry, blueberry and black currant fruit notes intermixed with a touch of spring flowers emerge from a wine with excellent balance, nicely integrated acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood, and a healthy saturated ruby/purple color. This full-bodied, long, captivating La Fleur Cardinale is already drinking well, and should continue to do so for 10-12 years. It is a sleeper of the vintage. 04/14 "This is very rich and dense with an almost cooked-blackberry character. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely mouthfeel to this wine...90" JS 02/14 "This is solid, with lush fig, blackberry and black currant compote notes, accented by a warm ganache edge. Dark and fleshy through the finish, showing prominent yet integrated dark toast. Should settle in with modest cellaring. For fans of the more hedonistic style...90" WS 03/14 "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...92-94" WA 04/12
