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.

Tasted from an ex-chateau bottle at the Lafleur vertical dinner in Austria. This 2007 is a real turn up for the books. It has a dusty, slightly foursquare bouquet with cedar and graphite infusing the carapace of blackberry and raspberry fruit. It is well defined but certainly very conservative. The palate is medium-bodied with a dense, introverted entry. Just when you think it is not going to perform up to the estate’s usual standards, it dovetails into this gorgeous, corpulent, Merlot-driven finish this is pure and primal. Amazing how last year this 2007 was so closed and unyielding. Perhaps this will not be so much of a long-term Lafleur, but it is very delicious. Tasted June 2012.

 

90 Robert Parker

Delicious aromas and flavors of kirsch and licorice emerge from the dark ruby-hued 2007 Lafleur (a blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc). It is a medium-bodied, round, luscious cuvee revealing more density than most of its peers. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
