Château Lafleur, Pomerol, 2022

Tasting Note:

From the very first waft from the glass, Lafleur 2022 demands and commands your attention. This is by far the most reserved and backward wine in the Guinaudeau range yet it is also clearly a great Lafleur with all the signs of brilliance to come. The complex, spicy, thought-provoking bouquet offers elemental notes, as well as touches of herb and earth. Coiled and introverted at first, with continued aeration, lifting floral notes emerge. One can’t help but sense the raw potential here - there's so much more to come. Powerful and hugely concentrated on the palate, there's nevertheless great refinement to the fruit – it’s deep and cerebral, immense even, yet vital and brimming with life. As one would expect from Lafleur, this is a vertical wine with tremendous length thanks to its epic tannins, which envelope the elements of the palate whilst amplifying the flavours and providing a seamless continuity from start to finish. There have been so many memorable Lafleurs over the last decade that it's difficult to pick a favourite. Suffice to say this is right up there with the best of the best. A superb wine; a Lafleur for the ages.
