The beginning of the year was rainy and wet.
The weather conditions became perfect again at the end of August. Then an Indian summer stretched until the end of October and allowed us to optimize the maturity of the three grape varieties.
The year was particularly successful for the Cabernets Francs.
- 70% Merlot
- 25% Cabernet Franc
- 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Fantastic aromas of crushed berries, lavender and blueberries. Full-bodied, dense and layered yet always polished and beautiful. Really impressive. Drink in 2020. - James Suckling 94 Points
The 2014 Fleur Cardinale is a dark, sumptuous wine. Dark cherry, plum, rose petal, licorice and sweet spices are all pushed forward. Extravagantly ripe and flamboyant, the 2014 hits all the right notes. As always, Fleur Cardinale shows the more overt, opulent side of Saint-Emilion, and yet all the elements are beautifully balanced. Tasted two times. - Antonio Galloni 94 Point
Bold and fruity, this wine is rich with smooth tannins and a fine ripe texture. Powered by its structure and its dark fruits, it is a wine for serious aging. Drink from 2022. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 90 Points
