With the team of Château Fleur Cardinale, Bob, Jean Philippe Fort, I tasted samples from 15 vats of Fleur Cardinale 2011, all had the same quality, with a gleaming black color, intense, soft tannins and ripe fruit, soft and silky mouth feel, we didn’t get tired enjoying all these batches with dense Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a luscious texture rarely seen. It was hard not to drink even before malolactic. It's a good sign.

Valandraud 2011: we tasted the last batches of Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, all very black and very dense but we have to wait until the malolactic are done, which are always late at our place. The devatting ended last Wednesday.

As the weekend approaches, I recommend checking out the site of Saint Emilion’s Tourist office where you will find lots of ideas for walks, discoveries and tips: free visits, discounts, etc...
