Lafleur 600cl 2008
Château Lafleur is undoubtedly one of the most highly prized estates in Pomerol and, since the Guinadeau family took over in the early 1980s, it has reached even greater heights in terms of quality, consistency and prestige. 2008 is a vastly underrated vintage that will almost always be overshadowed by the two once-in-a-generation vintages that followed it. That said, it is a charming, focused and fresh vintage that, although more readily drinkable in youth, has excellent cellaring potential. Unusually the blend contained a higher percentage of Cabernet Franc to Merlot, comprising 54% to 46%, respectively.
