Producer Information: Chateau Lafleur
Nestled next door to Pomerol’s Petrus, Château Lafleur measures a mere 4.5ha, planted almost exactly with half Cabernet Franc and half Merlot. Since the Guinaudeau family took control of production, an already highly regarded cru has reached greater heights, with more obsessive precision of selection and timing of picking, as well as more nuanced use of barrels. Combining their mineral expression of Merlot, with the perfume and complexity of Cabernet Franc, the Guineaudeau family has managed to create some of the most elegant, long-lived and collectible wines in Bordeaux.
