Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the nose absolutely shuts down upon first pour. After a lot of air, it slowly unfurls to reveal alluring scents of fresh black cherries, ripe blackberries and redcurrant jelly, leading to suggestions of sandalwood, pencil shavings, lilacs and forest floor, with emerging, heady wafts of camphor, iron ore and Indian spices. The rich, full-bodied palate is equally slow to read, offering whispers and murmurs of earth and exotic spice-laced black fruits with glimpses at a fleeting floral undercurrent, framed by firm, finely grained tannins and beautifully knit freshness, finishing with an edifying perfume. This is liquid poetry, but I would touch it for 7-8 years, at least.

Its grand vin of the same name, a combination of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, is known for its concentration, creamy texture, intense black fruits and spicy character. The wine is also powerfully structured and needs more cellaring than most wines in the appellation. In the best vintages it can last half a century. Famous US wine critic Robert Parker has called it \"one of the most distinctive, most exotic, and greatest wines – not only in Pomerol, but in the world\". Thanks in part to regular praise from Parker, who first visited in 1975, it is one of the most sought-after and highest priced wines on our database. Lafleur was founded in 1872 when Henri Greloud, the owner of Château Le Gay, bought the plot. It remains in the family and is now run his great, great grandchildren Jacques and Sylvie Guinaudeau. There are now six distinct vineyards (or groups of parcels) within the portfolio, each corresponding to a distinct wine.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-03-08T16:41:48-05:00","created_at":"2023-02-24T08:37:54-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","LK2402","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Château Lafleur","Region_Bordeaux","Source_Bestofwines0223","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":1459899,"price_min":1459899,"price_max":1459899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42802132648074,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2018 | Château Lafleur | Pomerol OWC of 6","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":1459899,"weight":73482,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_4813ecbd-a3b6-4402-b172-82134cb8388b.jpg?v=1677245909","\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_d43df1c6-630f-4d0c-ad9b-230e94fef856.jpg?v=1677246099"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_4813ecbd-a3b6-4402-b172-82134cb8388b.jpg?v=1677245909","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2018 | Château Lafleur | Pomerol OWC of 6 at CaskCartel.com","id":24284525166730,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.8,"height":625,"width":500,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_4813ecbd-a3b6-4402-b172-82134cb8388b.jpg?v=1677245909"},"aspect_ratio":0.8,"height":625,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_4813ecbd-a3b6-4402-b172-82134cb8388b.jpg?v=1677245909","width":500},{"alt":"2018 | Château Lafleur | Pomerol OWC of 6 at CaskCartel.com","id":24284542402698,"position":2,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_d43df1c6-630f-4d0c-ad9b-230e94fef856.jpg?v=1677246099"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/30_d43df1c6-630f-4d0c-ad9b-230e94fef856.jpg?v=1677246099","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2018 | Château Lafleur | Pomerol OWC of 6\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe dark plum and cherry preserve flavors are fleshy in feel, with singed cedar and tobacco notes filling in through the finish.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp;
