1986 Lafleur 75CL
The fruit seems sweet, and the wine has Lafleur’s telltale notes of kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, minerals, flowers, and truffles.
The wine is medium-bodied, weighty in the mouth, but so, so tannic and backward.
"It was their great-great-grand-father, 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 Jacques and Sylvie who are in charge of vinifying Château Lafleur, finally becoming the sole owners in 2002 together with their three children. It is also at the beginning of the 2000s that their son Baptiste and his wife Julie join us, with the aim of carrying on this unique work with the same convictions."
