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!
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.
