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.

An absolutely prodigious blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot, the 2009 Lafleur displays the tell-tale characteristics of this great estate. Kirsch liqueur, licorice and floral notes are intermixed with raspberry in a very full-bodied, super-intense, opulent and multi-dimensional style. Extraordinarily dense and pure, but not heavy by any means, the intensity, texture, and richness of the 2009 Lafleur are reminiscent of the perfect 1982. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.

Tasted from an ex-chateau bottle at the Lafleur vertical dinner in Austria. On this occasion it is difficult to separate the 2005 and 2009 Lafleur, although to reiterate my comments last year, they are very different and paradigms of the vintage. The bouquet has a ravishing, floral bouquet of violets and rose petals that explode from the glass. The palate is voluptuous, spherical and extraordinarily pure. It is far more generous and giving than the 2005 with raspberry and wild strawberry on the crescendo of a finish. The texture is to die for – pure satin. This wonderful should be cellared for at least a decade, although I suspect it will be approachable before the 2010. Tasted June 2012.
