Home > SELECTION > CHATEAU LAFLEUR


A tiny 4.5 ha vineyard of CH.LAFLEUR is located just next to CH.PETRUS and CH.LA FLEUR PETRUS. CH.PETRUS and CH.GAZIN share same type of heavy clay soil, but LAFLEUR possesses gravel soil. Therefore, grape varietals are different and both wine have totally different character.

CH.PETRUS is made from nearly 100% Merlot, on the other hand, component of CH.LAFLEUR is 50-65% Cabernet Franc and 50-35% Merlot. The wine has significant purity and multi layers texture. Kaleidoscopic aroma, nectar-like fruits, brilliant minerals, silky tannin, every factors are well integrated since early stage, and wine has huge ageing potential. Normally CH.LAFLEUR easily can go 30 years and sometimes more than 50 years. This wine is recognized as another top of Pomerol.

Jacques Guinadeau and his family own the chateau and they focus on wine making. Distribution is strictly managed by Ets Jean-Pierre MOUEIX as same as other top Pomerol such as CH.GAZIN, CH.CERTAN DE MAY and CH.PETRUS.
