Château Fleur Cardinale

Château Fleur Cardinale is a 60-acre Grand Cru estate in St.-Emilion. Though the estate dates back several centuries, its current owners, Florence and Dominique Decoster, purchased it in 2001. Dominque Decoster had been in the porcelain business in Limoges. The flagship wine is about 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and about 45,000 bottles are produced annually. The second wine is Château Bois Cardinale. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “Fleur Cardinale is made in a very satisfying, round, generous style that offers immediate satisfaction.”
