Bordeaux 2016: Chateau Lafleur, Pensees de Lafleur and Les Champs Libres
19 May 2017

At times a primeur campaign can be a bit pedestrian, at times it can be frenetic, and then there are moments to savour. This is one such moment. It is with delight that Justerini & Brooks can release the monumental Chateau Lafleur 2016. This was a wine that truly moved us. After a long, hard day’s tasting, the Guinaudeau’s wines tantalized our taste buds and thrilled us with precision, complexity and energy. It was a remarkable portfolio, which culminated in the spectacular Chateau Lafleur. Words cannot do these wines justice.

We have already waxed lyrical about the magnificent Grand Village and Acte. As we progressed up the range, we were dazzled by the purity of the ethereal Pensées de Lafleur. The Grand Vin is very grand indeed. It is a statuesque beauty with haunting high-toned notes and a deep underlying power. The 2016 Lafleur is quite a different beast to the 2015, but as Baptiste says, ‘it looks the 2015 in the eyes’. It may one day outgrow its older sibling – it is one of the most handsome and profound wines of the vintage and must rank amongst the truly great wines produced from this legendary terroir.
