is situated on the very best luxury
plateau in Pomerol and was founded in in 1872 by Henri Greloud. Since 1985 the Guinaudeaus have managed the Chateau with the greatest of care. The 4.5 hectares/11 acres of vineyard is looked after much like a carefully tended garden, consisting of different soil types that combine perfectly. The vines produced from this soil produce luxury
wines full of passion of the family who has grown them for more than a century.
Jacques and Sylvia Guinaudeau take a hands-on approach, and this is partly what helps to achieve the spectacular results of Chateau Lafleur
. The luxury
wines are comparable to those of Petrus, among some of the very best
in the world.
One of the very best
wines to come from the Chateau is the grand vin Chateau Lafleur
. This is one of the finest luxury
wines of Pomerol and is unique in that it holds a significant amount of Cabernet Franc within its blend. This is a luxury
wine of the very best
, one that is sought after all over the world. Chateau Lafleur
2009 is a wine that is open and giving, a superb wine that entices you into the bottle and lures the drinker. There are notes of black cherries mixed with violets, spices and pepper, all combine together superbly. It is a wine of power, combined with grace, freshness and the fine tannins show through and are what makes this a luxury
wine for connoisseurs of the very best
. There is little doubt that Chateau Lafleur
is a thoroughbred and a masterpiece among the very best
wines around the world. Chateau Lafleur
was introduced to the United Kingdom by John Armit, founder of armit. There are only three direct allocations made when the wines are declared each vintage by the Chateau for the world market, and armit is one of them. They have exclusive access to some of the very best luxury
pristine releases to come from the cellars of Chateau Lafleur
Armit was founded to create a portfolio of some of the worlds very best
wines. This still remains at the heart of armit today who exclusively represents Chateau Lafleur
, to secure allocations of their prestige wine. Their portfolio of the very best
wines continues to grow as does their association with some of the very best
winemakers in the world.
Another superb wine to come from the Chateau is Pensees de Lafleur. This wine originated in 1987 after Jacques thought his grapes were not of a quality fit for Lafleur. However the wine went on to receive the admiration of Lafleur and today Jacques regards the production of Pensees as essential.
