Fleur Cardinale

Yesterday evening Monday, June 4, a colleague négociant paid us a visit with a couple of friends from Canada (Ontario).

After tasting Valandraud 1999 at l’Essentiel, I had the pleasure to be part of a dinner organized for a journalist at Château Fleur Cardinale. We were “already” able to do a vertical tasting of this wine produced by the owners Florence and Dominique Decoster. This beautiful chateau was promoted to Grand Cru Classé in the latest round of classification. For your info, my order of preference for this wine of great quality is: 2005- 2003-2006-2004-2001-2002.

The 2005 vintage is absolutely remarkable and 2006, 2003 and 2004 are really delicious. I am proud to be one of the consultants for this cru.

Bravo to Lagrange in Saint Julien. Mr. Marcel Ducasse can be proud of his wine and especially this year, date of his retirement.

Tank you also to some of my colleagues négociants and brokers who made it possible for my wine to be included in the wine list of the business class of a fine airline. Would this be a bit cheating Air France!?
