95/100
Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

This has earthy, graphite-laced cool blue fruits that you wouldn't necessarily associate with a solar vintage like 2019. It says a lot for the deft, skilful winemaking, as this delivers a sense of verticality and lift through the palate, and edges of elderflower and pencil lead delicacy. Gathers in intensity, reflects its limestone soils. Demands attention and patience. From the Guinaudeau family, as with Château Lafleur in Pomerol.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

The 2019 Les Perrieres is an approximate blend of 2/3 Bouchet (Cabernet Franc) and 1/3 Merlot. "This is Lafleur on limestone," commented winemaker Omri Ram. "We produced a near exact copy of Lafleur with cuttings taken from Pomerol. These are now 5- to 10-year-old vines." Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs a little swirling to reveal notes of black raspberries, Morello cherries, and mulberries with suggestions of violets, cumin seed, wild sage, and rosehip tea. Medium-bodied, the palate is lively with crunchy red and black fruits layers framed by very fine-grained tannins and great tension, finishing long and lifted.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2019 Les Perrières de Lafleur is too oaky on the nose and this masks the terroir expression. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, graphite infused black fruit with a strict and structured finish redeemed by satisfying freshness. A bit "serious" for a Pomerol at this level, but it may surprise with bottle age. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.

Les Perrières

Les Perrières

The Guinaudeaus have long admired the wines of Châteaux Canon, Magdelaine, Belair and Ausone; all produced on the great limestone Côte of St Emilion. They pondered what their Bouchet (old Cabernet Franc) genetics would produce on a similar limestone terroir. Years of soil analysis and negotiation followed, then a huge replanting project and experimentation. After a decade of production, this project is beginning to affirm the Guinaudeaus original convictions. The precision and quality of its tannins, the inherent complexity and restrained power, and the very long mineral finish makes Les Perrières de Lafleur 2018 a grand vin in the lineage of Château Lafleur.

The heart of Les Perrières de Lafleur is situated at the hamlet of Meyney, on the south-west ridge of the plateau of Fronsac. The subsoil is intertwined with ancient limestone quarries, which offer Les Perrières de Lafleur a great viticultural potential. Planted with 50% Bouchet originating at Lafleur and 50% of Merlot, the vineyard is managed by the Château Lafleur team, and the vinification of its fruit is done with the same precision and expertise.
