"This wine has turned out beautifully from bottle, far superior to the impressive barrel samples! Sadly, production is limited to a mere 350 cases. Dense purple to the rim, with a superb bouquet of acacia flowers, blueberries, black currants, and crushed rocks, the wine’s oak component is completely obscured by the wealth of fruit and overall rich, concentrated style. As I have indicated in the past, this blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc emerges from a vineyard averaging 100 years of age. Yields are a tiny 21 hectoliters per hectare. This exquisite St.-Emilion should be accessible in 5-7 years, and last for 25 or more. Kudos to the brilliant oenologist, Claude Gros, who produced this masterpiece."

Château Lafleur, founded in 1872 by Henri GreloudIf is one of the spearheads of the Pomerol appellation, Today it is his descendants, Sylvie and Jacques GuinauDeau, who own it alongside their son Baptiste and his wife Julie, to whom they have handed over the reins.
The Château Lafleur has a vineyard of 4.5 hectares in a single block, and has the notable distinction of never having undergone the slightest plot modification since its creation. The soils are composed of sandy-clay gravel to the northwest and clay gravel to the south and east, as well as some gravelly sand in the heart of the vineyard. The grape varieties are 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc, the latter maturing well. Only 20,000 bottles are produced each year.
