Chateau Lafleur 2010

Pomerol, France

Bordeaux Blend, 2010

 

🍷Pomerol is a small but distinctive wine region in Bordeaux producing opulent and glamorous red wines dominated by the Merlot grape. Chateau Lafleur is considered a top-quality producer not just in Pomerol but throughout the entirety of Bordeaux. It rivals not only Petrus but the Premier Cru classified chateaus as well. This wine is a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc coming from the truly great 2010 vintage. It has received critical acclaim scoring 100 points and 99 points from James Suckling and Robert Parker respectively. “It has a boisterous ripe blackberry, cranberry, sous-bois and graphite-scented bouquet that is an absolute beauty. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin; there is immense depth and wonderful cohesion. Mineral-drenched black fruit, a slightly chalky texture and outstanding energy and tension on the finish.” This wine will be best from 2020-2040. 🍴Pair with veal stew forestière.
