Description :

Deep ruby-colored with noteworthy amber at the edge, this is the only Lafleur from a very fine year that has reached full maturity, at least from the last two decades. I have had this wine from both regular bottle and magnum, and it is an example of Lafleur at its kinkiest and most exotic.

Château Lafleur

Château Lafleur Grand Cru Classé Pomerol  

Located in the vicinity of Château Pétrus, this small estate shares history with the property across the road, Château Le Gay. Both part of the property Le Manoir de Gay in the mid 18th century, it was purchased by the Greloud family and divided among the sons into two properties, the Domain de Lafleur section eventually inherited by André Robin who imprinted on Lafleur his personal motto, "Qualité passe quantité" (French: Quality surpasses quantity).

In 1946 the sisters Marie and Thérèse Robin inherited both Lafleur and Le Gay, and ran both estates for nearly 40 years until Thérèse Robin’s death. Allegedly reclusive characters, the sisters were disinterested in the growing fame of Lafleur, preferring to remain in the shadow of Château Pétrus. In 1981 the longstanding distributors of Lafleur the Libourne merchant Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix handled management for Marie Robin. Upon the death of Marie Robin in 2001, Jacques and Sylvie Guinaudeau took charge of the estate.

A tiny, 10-acre estate located in the Pomerol Bordeaux’s appellation. None of the Pomerol properties are classified, but if they were, this one would probably be equal to a Médoc Premier Cru (first growth). In some vintages the quality of these wines exceeds even those from Pomerol’s most famous château, Pétrus.

These wines can be dense, concentrated, and full-bodied and can age for 30 years or more. Because it’s so small, Château Lafleur averages only about 1 000 cases of red wine each year. The wine’s a combination of approximately 50% cabernet-franc and 50% merlot. For wines that don’t meet its high standards, Château Lafleur uses the second wine Les Pensées de Lafleur.


Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 93 points
"Deep ruby-colored with noteworthy amber at the edge, this is the only Lafleur from a very fine year that has reached full maturity, at least from the last two decades. I have had this wine from both regular bottle and magnum, and it is an example of Lafleur at its kinkiest and most exotic. The soaring nose of jammy kirsch, plum, licorice, and Asian spices is superb. Soft, round, plump, medium to full-bodied flavors coat the palate with considerable glycerin and sweet tannin. This is an open-knit, surprisingly evolved, luscious Lafleur that should continue to drink well for 10-15 years. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010." (1998)

Wine Spectator : 91 points
"Port-like. A monster. Extremely ripe, exaggerated style with loads of berry and earth character. Full-bodied and tannic. Still needs time; try after 1998." (1994)
