Winemaker's Notes:

Chateau La Fleur is a true mixture of tradition and contemporary change. Traditional picking by hand, with two sorting operations of the fruit. We keep the best traditions and choose the new developments the most adapted to our terroir, to enable it to express itself as best as it can.
My Notes:

About Chateau La Fleur:

Known in 1898 under the name "Cru Merissac", then in 1929 as "La Fleur Merissac", the first label with Chateau La Fleur, Saint-Emilion 1st Grand Cru appeared in 1949.

In 2002, Chateau Dassault purchased its closest neighbour, Chateau La Fleur, with the intention of elevating this wine to Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe status. Laurent Dassault decided to invest in this estate located on a clayey promontory on the northern slops of the appellation area, to enable its marvellous terroir to express its true value.
