La Fleur Chazal

In 2013 the US market began to flood with small Bordeaux producers.  A lot of these families has for many years produced product for their community for immediate consumption. Once the opportunity arose, they began selling to the US.  The primier Bordeaux producers are still set in place, no worries, but these wines are delicious for the price!

La Fleur Cardarelli Family

For three generations the Cardarelli family (whose ancestors emigrated from Southern Italy) has produced quality wines in the Bordeaux region. Located near Pomerol, the vineyards for this wine lie on a 400ft high plateau which provides for a full sun exposure. The high plains terroir is the principal reason for the richness and finesse of the La Fleur Chazal wine.

La Fleur Chazal Sauvignon Blanc
Hints of fresh grass, grapefruit and lemon. Refreshing acidity, lemon and lime pith, subtle meadow and minerality.  Pairings:   River fish, goat cheese, meat pastries and breads

La Fleur Chazal Borgogne Rouge
Ripe red fruits- raspberry, cherry with well-rounded tannins.  70% Merlot, 30% Cab Sauvignon  Food Pairings: Best with red meats, cold cuts & cheese.

Great table wines, both! If you’re interested in buying either at the wholesale level, let me know: jens@jstreckerselections.com
