Chateau Lafleur 2005 – 75cl
1 in stock
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-Petrus. The 4 hectares of vineyard are planted with 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc with an average age of the vines at nearly 40 years.
The wines at Chateau Lafleur are fermented in concrete vats with long maceration. The wines are transferred into oak barrels for 18 months for malolactic fermentation and aging. One third to one half of the barrels are replaced with new ones each year. The best vintages can last for up to 50 years.
This amazing wine puts on a display of fireworks in terms of its aromatics, with a stunning nose of blue and black fruits, forest floor, flowers and earth. Dense purple, full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic and super-concentrated, this is a profound Pomerol that still needs another decade of cellaring. This is possibly the greatest Lafleur of the modern era, rivaling the 1982 and 2000. Forget it for another 5-10 years and drink it over the following quarter-century.
