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.

This amazing wine puts on a display of fireworks in terms of its aromatics, with a stunning nose of blue and black fruits, forest floor, flowers and earth. Dense purple, full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic and super-concentrated, this is a profound Pomerol that still needs another decade of cellaring. This is possibly the greatest Lafleur of the modern era, rivaling the 1982 and 2000. Forget it for another 5-10 years and drink it over the following quarter-century. June 2015

Tasted at a Lafleur seminar in London, the 2005 is a legendary wine in the making. It has a boisterous, ebullient, ravishing bouquet of succulent black, truffle infused fruit with hints of crushed stone, the bell pepper element less evident on this occasion. The palate is medium-bodied and tightly wound, perhaps less expressive than other bottles that I have encountered. You could argue that it has an almost understated entry, but then you realize that there is a core of extraordinarily concentrated dark black fruit that is waiting for you. It has wonderful minerality towards the finish and extremely fine focus and persistency. At the moment, a Lafleur of dimension and ambition rather than pleasure, which will come. Drink 2018-2035+.
