Winemaker Notes

Eminently approachable, even in its youth, Lafleur-Gazin is a delightful expression of the lighter style of Pomerol wines. 

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 94
Jeb Dunnuck
Deep purple-hued, with a brilliant nose of blueberries, black cherries, damp earth, chocolate, and flowers, the 2020 Château Lafleur-Gazin is medium to full-bodied and has a wonderful mid-palate, building tannins, and a great finish. One big, rich, dense Pomerol, it’s going to handsomely reward bottle age. Give bottles a solid 5-6 years and it should keep for two decades or more.
Barrel Sample: 92-94+
JS 93
James Suckling
Such gorgeous aromas of blackberries, blueberries and crushed stones. Fresh flowers, too. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a clean, round-textured finish.
Barrel Sample: 92-93
V 92
Vinous
The 2020 Lafleur-Gazin is a bruiser. Inky blackberry fruit, charcoal, game, licorice, spice and leather open first, followed by a blast of acid and tannin that states the wine's assertive personality. There is good depth and substance, even if the tannins remain pretty burly. –Antonio Galloni
Barrel Sample: 90-92
D 91
Decanter
A seductive but slightly held back feel, this has an attractive frame and plenty of raspberry, coffee and tobacco grilled fruits and spice. Enjoyable although doesn't totally escape the effects of a dry summer, there is some closing down and tightness of the tannins, balanced out by a burst of fresh mint which lifts the palate on the finish. Enjoyable.

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.
