Winemaker Notes

The vineyard management and vinification are carried out traditionally and with great care, producing a plump, supple, fleshy wine with ripe fruit and silky tannins. Eminently approachable, even in its youth, Lafleur-Gazin is a delightful expression of the lighter style of Pomerol wines.

Blend: 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling

A dense, structured red with plums and currants and hints of cedar and chocolate powder. Medium to full body. Juicy fruit. Flavorful finish. Drink in 2021 and onwards.

JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
Bright cherries, raspberries, and floral notes all round out the 2017 Château Lafleur-Gazin, a plump, sexy, seductive Pomerol that has beautiful purity and elegance. Made from 100% Merlot on well-drained gravel, clay, and sandy soils, it has ripe tannin, juicy acidity, and again, terrific purity of fruit. This estate, which falls under the Moueix umbrella, has certainly produced a successful Pomerol.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
WS 92
Wine Spectator

Ripe and enticing, with velvety plum sauce and blackberry puree flavors, lined with smoldering black tea, ganache and sweet tobacco notes. Good brambly energy pushes the finish. Has some grip to shed, so cellar in the near term. Best from 2022 through 2036.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This well-structured wine has firm tannins and rich black fruit in equal proportions. The texture brings in acidity that adds to the ripe fruitiness, pointing to a balanced wine as it ages. Drink from 2022.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lafleur-Gazin, 100% Merlot, displays delicate aromas of crushed cherries, Black Forest cake and baked plums with suggestions of star anise, fenugreek, unsmoked cigars and forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is chock-full of vibrant red and black berry layers, framed by nice, ripe, rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing with a spicy kick. Rating:91+

D 91
Decanter

Nose a little subdued here but the flavours are pure and well defined on the palate, with softly-spun pepper and rosemary notes. Savoury feel overall, but one that has poise and balance and will be ready to drink within a few years. Lightly structured but well-put together and with extraction that was extremely carefully handed. Enjoyable, and taken on weight during ageing. Drinking Window 2021 - 2036

Pomerol Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

A source of exceptionally sensual and glamorous red wines, Pomerol is actually a rather small appellation in an unassuming countryside. It sits on a plateau immediately northeast of the city of Libourne on the right bank of the Dordogne River. Pomerol and St-Émilion are the stars of what is referred to as Right Bank Bordeaux: Merlot-dominant red blends completed by various amounts of Cabernet Franc or Cabernet Sauvignon. While Pomerol has no official classification system, its best wines are some of the world’s most sought after.

Historically Pomerol attached itself to the larger and more picturesque neighboring region of St-Émilion until the late 1800s when discerning French consumers began to recognize the quality and distinction of Pomerol on its own. Its popularity spread to northern Europe in the early 1900s.

After some notable vintages of the 1940s, the Pomerol producer, Petrus, began to achieve great international attention and brought widespread recognition to the appellation. Its subsequent distribution by the successful Libourne merchant, Jean-Pierre Mouiex, magnified Pomerol's fame after the Second World War.

Perfect for Merlot, the soils of Pomerol—clay on top of well-drained subsoil—help to create wines capable of displaying an unprecedented concentration of color and flavor.

The best Pomerol wines will be intensely hued, with qualities of fresh wild berries, dried fig or concentrated black plum preserves. Aromas may be of forest floor, sifted cocoa powder, anise, exotic spice or toasted sugar and will have a silky, smooth but intense texture.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
