Lafleur

Château Lafleur is a Bordeaux wine from the appellation Pomerol. The winery is located on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux wine region, in the commune of Pomerol in the department Gironde. As all wine produced in this appellation, Château Lafleur is unclassified, but the estate is estimated among the great growths of the region. Among the most rare and expensive wines, the wine is widely cited as one of the world's finest.

Since 1984 the estate has also produced a second wine named Les Pensées de Lafleur, which has been termed an 'insider's secret'.

The vineyard area consists of 4 hectares with the grape varieties of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc.

The annual production averages 1,000 cases of the Grand vin Château Lafleur and approximately 750 cases of the second wineLes Pensées de Lafleur.

The exotic, nearly over the top 2003 exhibits a southern Rhone-like characteristic of kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries and flowers. Sweet fruit, high levels of glycerin (the alcohol is less than 13.5%), and high but silky tannins have resulted in a broad, expansive, terrific example of Lafleur that should be at its finest between 2008-2025. Along with Petrus, this stunning, full-bodied 2003 is a candidate for the top wine of Pomerol.

 

92 Neal Martin

Tasted from an ex-chateau bottle at the Lafleur vertical dinner at Attersee in Austria. An equal blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2003 Lafleur has a rounded, voluptuous bouquet with scents of strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant and a touch of vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied and very sensual in texture. There is good structure here, a relatively “fat” Lafleur with very expressive Merlot. Fleshy in texture, this is still quite youthful, although it does not possess the extra dimension of a great Lafleur due to the growing season. Still, this remains one of the few successes of Pomerol in 2003. Tasted June 2012.
