Tasting Note:

This is the first time we have tasted at Château Lafleur and we are grateful to Jacques and Sylvie Guinaudeau for their last minute hospitality. The name Lafleur carries with it almost magical connotations and we can see why: the house is simple and quaint, and the wine pure and, in a sense, simple, insofar as it is an honest and uncomplicated reflection of an exceptional terroir. On the nose to begin with, it is as humble as the château itself, delicate and floral, but it builds in confidence and expands gently on the palate to remarkable, mouth-filling proportions, all softness and balance, with pure fruit and a long, gentle finish. Quite an experience.
