"A strong effort from this well-run estate, the 2007 Fleur Cardinale may turn out to be as good as the 2009, which is a slightly more ruggedly constructed and bigger wine, but not necessarily better. The 2007 is a mid-weight blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Yields were only 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine hit 13.5% natural alcohol. Sweet black currant and blueberry fruit intermixed with spring flower, graphite, and subtle wood aromas are followed by an intense, richly fruity St.-Emilion with low acids, sweet, ripe tannins, and a lush, heady finish. It should drink beautifully for a decade or more."
