The vines of Lafleur-Gazin lie on the edge of the clay-rich, central plateau of Pomerol, ideally situated between two famous châteaux: Gazin and Lafleur. The vineyards (average age 30 years) have been managed since 1973 by Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix, on behalf of the grand-daughters of owner, Mme. Delfour-Borderie. Only the best plots go into this Grand Vin. 100% Merlot grapes – hand-picked, then both manually and optically sorted – make up this wine, which will age for up to 18 months in oak barrels, more than 30% of which are new. In colour, this is intense, purple-ruby right to the rim, with aromas which are freshly fruity and youthful, with notes of kirsch and undergrowth. Palate shows rich structure, pure, precise fruitiness, velvet roundness and generous length (for drinking 2024-2035+).
