The vineyards of Lafleur-Gazin lie on the edge of the clay-rich, central plateau of Pomerol, beside two famous neighbours: Châteaux Gazin and Lafleur-Pétrus. In 2008, there is a relatively high proportion of Cabernet Franc here (20%) bringing notable vivacity, with 80% Merlot. Colour is medium deep purple to rim, the nose being open and lively, with spiced, red currant and raspberry aromas. On the palate it has generous, dense fruitiness, with well-ripened, supple tannins and a fine, long finish (for drinking 2018-2020+).
