This great vineyard is planted to 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot, with an average age of vines of over 35 years, on a deep, gravelly bed of iron- and potassium-rich soils. This micro-estate's wines are extremely sought after, and Robert Parker boasts that, "Along with Petrus, Lafleur is a titan of Pomerol as well as one of Bordeaux's most prodigious wines. It is rarer than Petrus and often just as expensive."

Wine AdvocateThis amazing wine puts on a display of fireworks in terms of its aromatics, with a stunning nose of blue and black fruits, forest floor, flowers and earth. Dense purple, full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic and super-concentrated, this is a profound Pomerol that still needs another decade of cellaring. This is possibly the greatest Lafleur of the modern era, rivaling the 1982 and 2000. Forget it for another 5-10 years and drink it over the following quarter-century.

Wine SpectatorExhibits a complex nose of crushed blackberry, dried flowers and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, with a rich, powerful palate. Tannic and muscular, with great length. Superracy. Builds and goes and goes. So fine and beautiful. Mythic. Best after 2017.
