Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru
Alcohol 13,0 %
Ch. Croix Cardinale is not a second wine but a chateau on its own, situated next to Ch. Fleur Cardinale. The vines are on average 40 years old and the soil consists of mainly clay, more than on Ch. Fleur Cardinale. The vineyard is made of one piece. The techniques that are used to vinify the wine are similar to those of Ch. Fleur Cardinale: careful maintenance of the vineyard, manual harvesting in small crates, waiting from harvest to optimum ripeness, selections by a selection machine and vinification in 100% new oak barrels. The wine is opulent, rich and moderate in tannins with a voluminous black fruit aroma.
