Chateau Lafleur-Gazin, Pomerol, Bordeaux, France, 2014 

21 acres planted, 85% Merlot & 15% Cabernet Franc, handpicked, 16-18 months ageing in French oak barrels (30-40% new wood).

Situated on the northern edge of the plateau of Pomerol, nestled between Château Gazin and Château La Fleur-Pétrus, this wine has been produced by Jean-Pierre Moueix since 1976 for the Delfour-Borderie family, owners since 1930.

The Merlot vines (averaging 30 years of age), are planted on gravel and clay. The Cabernet Franc is planted on silt soils, which encourage a nuanced and full expression of this varietal’s character.

The vineyard management and vinification are carried out traditionally and with great care, producing a plump, supple, fleshy wine with ripe fruit and silky tannins.

Eminently approachable, even in its youth, Lafleur-Gazin is a delightful expression of the lighter style of Pomerol wines.

"A smooth wine that is ripe with rich berry and dark-plum fruits. With its soft tannins and juicy crisp acidity, the wine is warm, rounded and likely to develop quickly. Drink this already attractive smoky wine from 2020."

90/100 points, Wine Enthusiast, January 2017

Drink with veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game and even Asian and hearty fish courses like tuna.
