2010 Fleur Cardinale From an 18 hectare, clay and limestone vineyard, located next to Valandraud , Florence and Dominique Decoster put a lot of effort into their 2010, starting with reducing their yields to 36 hectoliters per hectare. The assemblage for 2010 is 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
With its deep color, cassis, blackberry, licorice and jammy liqueur aromas exude from the glass. This full bodied wine offers layers of opulent dark fruit ending with a fresh, licorice, blackberry, dark cherry and chocolate finish. This is the best wine from the estate since the outstanding 2005. For consumers not familiar with this property, they remain one of the top Bordeaux wines combining price and quality. 93-95 Pts
