Chateau La Fleur des Rouzes is a micro-estate located near Chateau Clinet in Pomerol’s exclusive district, known as ‘the plateau’. A family property for 100+ years, the estate is comprised of only 2.8 hectares (7 acres) of vineyards and the production is only about 500 cases. We grew up on a 10 acre horse farm, which was big for the suburbs, but very small for a wine estate! With such limited production, this wine has been rarely seen in the U.S. market. Made in a classic Pomerol style, the wine is from 26-year-old vines of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in complex soils with gravel, silt, iron and sandstone, sandwiched in between some of the most famous estates of the appellation. All harvesting is done by hand, fermentation is conducted in concrete vats, and aging is done in French oak barrels for 14-16 months (25 % new, 25 % one year 25 % two year and 25% three year).

Rich and noble in style, this 2016 has layers of ripe berry fruits, plums, violets, earth and spice with well-integrated oak flavors. Rich tannins make it drinkable now but ensure a long life. This is opulent, full-bodied, charming and an incredible deal.

The Château’s philosophy is simple: 'The nobility of our grapes makes the force of our wine'.

Wine EnthusiastStill very structured, this is a solid wine with bold tannins and smoky black fruits. The dry core and structure mean the wine needs to age. Its weight and ripeness will help it on the way. Drink from 2022.
