"Super rich baking spices across ripe dark plums in a very suave and attractively styled nose. The palate has incredible depth and succulently seductive, fleshy plum flavors. Wow. Try from 2022." JamesSuckling.com

"Delicious dark fig and boysenberry confiture flavors run from start to finish here, with a graphite spine embedded along the way. Flashes of anise, tar and singed mesquite add range. Not shy, but has the cut to pull it off. Best from 2022 through 2032. 9,583 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2015 Fleur Cardinale is terrific. Exotic and flamboyantly ripe, it exudes richness and depth in all of its dimensions. Blackberry jam, grilled herbs, mocha, leather and menthol are all amped up in a dramatic, full-bodied wine that is long on personality. As always, Fleur Cardinale shows the more opulent side of Saint-Émilion. A burst of red cherry jam, spice, new leather, spice, lavender and French oak punctuates the unctuous finish. Tasted three times." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"The 2015 Fleur Cardinale has a very pure bouquet with red cherries, boysenberry jam and violet aromas that are neatly integrated with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and layers of ripe black and red fruit, but fortunately there is the acidity to maintain freshness and the silky finish is very seductive. It will require 4 or 5 years in bottle, but this is a Fleur Cardinale that should age with style. Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2038." Neal Martin

"Blackish crimson. Very sweet - too sweet? Smells of fermented blackcurrant pastilles. Vieux jeu! But there is a bit of freshness here. Some liveliness and drive on top of pretty ripe fruit." JancisRobinson.com
