Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Pensées de Lafleur gives up notes of black olives, cedar chest, and balsamic over a core of baked plums, blackberry pie and raisin cake. Medium to full-bodied, the mid-palate takes a slight dip while the finish is a little tart and chewy.
"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."
