Château Lafleur is a tiny 4.5-hectare Pomerol property located opposite Pétrus and next to La Fleur-Pétrus, producing wines of comparable quality. Its vineyards are situated on the gravel-rich Pomerol plateau Only natural fertilisers are used and yields are extremely low, even by Pomerol standards. Lafleur’s wine is typically a blend of 50/50 Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the latter lending a spectacularly intense perfume. They can 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.
