2001 Les Pensees De Lafleur 75CL
Tasted at John Armit’s Lafleur dinner, the Pensees de Lafleur ’01 has a gorgeous bouquet of blackberry, fresh black olives, crushed stone and a touch of rose petals. Wonderful definition.
The palate is medium-bodied with great poise and penetration, silky smooth tannins with that mineralite dominating the finish. This second label is on par with some of the finest Grand Vins! Superb. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2010.
"It was our great-great-grandfather, Henri Greloud, who founded Château Lafleur after buying in 1872 this small Domaine of 4.5 hectares gathered in a sole patch of land. After renewing the vineyard and constructing the house and cellars, he baptizes this cru after the name of the hamlet: Lafleur.
Since 1985 it is us, Jacques and Sylvie, who are in charge of vinifying Château Lafleur, finally becoming the sole owners in 2002 together with our three children. It is also at the beginning of the 2000s that our son Baptiste and his wife Julie join us, with the aim of carrying on this unique work with the same convictions.
Together with our team at Lafleur we also produce five other wines: in Pomerol, on the clay-gravelly sand of the vineyard of Lafleur, Les Pensées de Lafleur. In the region of Fronsac, with its clay-limestone terroir, we produce Château Grand-Village red, Château Grand-Village white, Les Champs Libres and Acte named Les Perrières de Lafleur in 2018."
