Château Lafleur is undoubtedly one of the finest and rarest wines in Bordeaux. Robert Parker is one of the property’s greatest enthusiasts, finding majesty in many of the older vintages. ‘It is one of the most distinctive, most exotic and greatest wines, not only in Pomerol, but in the world,’ he has noted. Other commentators find an almost Burgundian quality to the wines’ elegance and individuality.
The 2015 vintage is spectacular and received two perfect ratings so far. Lisa from the Wine Advocate said this gem is "whispering promises of a whole myriad of provocative finishes to discover throughout this wine's very long future. This exquisite masterpiece is not to be missed." (WA100).

The 2015 Lafleur is a blend of 54% Cabernet Franc and 46% Merlot. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it's profoundly scented of plum preserves, chocolate-covered cherries and blueberry pie with nuances of black olives, lavender, unsmoked cigars and cast iron pan plus a touch of Indian spices. The rich, medium to full-bodied palate is completely packed with tightly wound fragrant earth, black fruit and exotic spice layers, supported by perfectly ripe, wonderfully velvety tannins and seamless freshness. The epically long finish delivers a sum that is greater than the many compelling characters imparted on the nose and palate, whispering promises of a whole myriad of provocative finishes to discover throughout this wine's very long future. This exquisite masterpiece is not to be missed.

Very deep and dark fruits on the nose with black mushrooms and wet earth and just a hint of stones. Touch of rust. Full-bodied, tight and focused. Lots of tannins yet this is so polished under the surface of the wine. Draws you in and holds you with its unique personality. Some tile and clay character to it. Makes you think. Try in 2025.
