With 70 % Merlot and equal balancing amounts of 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the Fleur Cardinale is a complex Claret for laying down for several years before it fully unveils the multi-layered character. The forward nature of the 2007 brings us an accessible and early maturing style.
Quinault L'Enclos is now part of the Cheval Blanc stable. The 2003 is precocious and approachable as you would expect from this warmer and dryer than usual vintage. A successful Merlot dominated St Emilion. If you like soft and generous, charming Bordeaux wines this will hit the spot.
