Chateau Lafleur Les Perrieres de Lafleur 2018

75cl / 15%

“Formerly releases as the Act # series, the 2018 Les Perrieres De Lafleur gets its own name in 2018 as the team at Lafleur felt it finally met their expectations. Translating to the “stones of Lafleur,” the vineyard for this wine, which is mostly limestone, was planted from a massal selection from the Lafleur vineyard in Pomerol starting in 2005 and 2006. The first “Act” release was in 2009, and today this is a brilliant wine as well as one of the finest Fronsacs out there.

Ruby-purple color followed by a beautiful bouquet of crème de cassis, kirsch liqueur, white flowers, and earthy minerality. Medium to full-bodied, incredibly floral and elegant on the palate, with ultra-fine tannins, it’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15+. If you find a bottle of this, you should buy it.”

It prances out of the glass with wonderfully gregarious notes of kirsch, Black Forest cake and wild blueberries, followed by hints of menthol, rose hip tea and underbrush.

The medium to full-bodied palate is packed with energy-charged red and black fruit layers, supported by exquisitely ripe, fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Mmmm, that is good! – Lisa Perrotti-Brown

History of Château Lafleur

Château Lafleur is a tiny 4.5-hectare Pomerol property located opposite Pétrus and producing wines of comparable quality. Lafleur is owned and run by Sylvie and Jacques Guinadeau. Its vineyards are situated on the gravel-rich Pomerol plateau and adjoin those of La Fleur-Pétrus. The soils here are particularly deep and are enriched by deposits of potassium and iron. Only natural fertilisers are used and yields are painfully low, even by Pomerol standards.

Lafleur’s wine is typically a blend of Merlot (50%) and Cabernet Franc (50%). It is aged in small oak barrels (50% new) for 18 months. Wines from Lafleur display a spectacularly intense perfume (partly attributable to the high percentage of Cabernet Franc in the blend) and display layers and layers of concentrated, black fruits, minerals, tobacco spices and creamy liquorice on the palate. The best vintages can last for up to 50 years.
