Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château Lafleur Gazin, Pomerol, 2017

This Jean-Pierre Moueix estate is well situated between Gazin and the original plot of La Fleur Petrus. The 8.75 hectare vineyard on clay, silt and gravel soils is planted with 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. It used to be a somewhat rustic style; however Edouard and Christian have transformed the wine here into a real beauty. The last three vintages were real successes and 2017 continues that trend. For the money, we doubt you'll find much better in Pomerol. The 2017 is produced from 100% Merlot and is made in a restrained, elegant style. There is plenty of fragrant red berry fruit, notes of tayberry and wild black cherry are interspersed with graphite, a little florality and a touch of earthiness. This is a refreshing and honest Pomerol that will offer good value for money and lots of drinking pleasure.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2017 Lafleur-Gazin has a light bouquet with blackberry, raspberry and damp earthy/woodland aromas that need to muster more intensity but frankly, it’s just not in the mood. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of red fruit tinged with dried blood and meat juice, quite a ferrous Pomerol with pleasing depth towards the finish. Not bad overall, but certainly a wine that I would consume within its first decade.
