STEREO LAFLEUR

This month I got to taste four-decade verticals of Château Lafleur twice – in Bangkok, and then Shanghai. My ‘Stereo Lafleur’ report is here (print-friendly PDF). It runs to a few pages, so here is the gist of it…

Three factors have combined to make Lafleur so special-

  • A 50/50 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc – very high for the latter.
  • Terroir that delivers optimal ripening for both varieties.
  • Conservative and conservationist attitudes that have kept vines old, yields low, and winemaking subtle.

These three factors deliver a complex, layered, sometimes mysterious wine with a thick texture and dense fruit and tannin that nonetheless feels unforced and freely expressed. These are not ‘made’ wines – in other words there is no sense of ego or artifice.
