Tasting Note:

This Jean-Pierre Moueix estate is well situated between Gazin and the original plot of La Fleur Pétrus. The 8.5 hectare vineyard is planted on clay, silt and gravel soils. It used to be a somewhat rustic style; however, Edouard and Christian have made numerous improvements and this is becoming a stylish and characterful Pomerol. The last few vintages have been real successes and 2019 continues that trend. For the money, we doubt you'll find much better in this luxurious commune. Produced from 100% Merlot this offers a glorious bouquet of heady black fruit, crème de mûre, scorched earth and graphite. Although the palate is dense and packed with black cherry, stony minerals, hedgerow fruit and liquorice, it is so fresh and bright. The tannins are beautifully managed; they stain the palate with savoury infused cassis and notes of kirsch. This is quite a serious, grown up Lafleur Gazin.
