2018 Lafleur-Gazin, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407977 94-95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Another tight and solidly structured Pomerol with dark-berry, chocolate and hazelnut character. Full-bodied yet reserved and polished. Serious is all I can say. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Lafleur-Gazin has a more floral bouquet compared to Lagrange, scents of red berry fruit, brown spices, black truffle and leather emerge with time, quite open and forward. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, a mixture of red and black fruit mixed with black truffle and cedar. This is a composed and harmonious Lafleur-Gazin with attractive black pepper notes appearing belatedly on the finish. This is one of the best wines that I have tasted from Lafleur-Gazin in recent years. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Château Lafleur-Gazin is all Merlot and comes from a tiny parcel of gravelly, clay, and silty soils in Pomerol. Sweet red and black cherries, incense, and spicy oak as well as earth all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, polished, ripe, beautifully balanced red. With silky yet present tannins, good purity and freshness, and a great finish, it's another terrific 2018 to drink over the coming 10-15 years. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

K&L Notes

90-93 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2018 Lafleur-Gazin is a wine of tremendous immediacy and appeal. Nothing really stands out, rather it is the wine's exceptional balance and overall harmony that leave a deep impression. Silky tannins wrap around a core of bright red cherry, raspberry, rose petal, mint and cinnamon in a gracious, mid-weight Pomerol that is all seduction." (4/2019)

The poor house in the rich neighborhood of Petrus, La Fleur Petrus, Gazin, etc. This wine is lovely-quite soft and elegant. Lots of black cherry flavors. Fine on the finish.
Drink from 2022 to 2032
