Eminently approachable, even in its youth, Lafleur-Gazin is a delightful expression of the lighter style of Pomerol wines.

The 2016 Lafleur-Gazin is made up of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Medium garnet-purple colored, it simply sings of red roses, cherry cordial, blackberry pie and warm blueberries with suggestions of cinnamon toast and wood smoke. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with tons of juicy red and blue berry flavors, supported by a wonderfully soft, velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

Almost pure Merlot, this dense wine is rich and packed with black fruits. Its concentration and density are massive, with tannins that are almost velvet in character. Drink this wine from 2023.

Rich cherry compote and plum preserve flavors define this wine, while licorice snap, singed alder and tobacco notes fill in the background. Lingering wood spice accents run through the finish, while the fruit hangs on. Best from 2021 through 2031. 2,700 cases made.

The 2016 Lafleur-Gazin is soft, open-knit and quite gracious. This is an especially lifted, perfumed Pomerol. Tobacco, cedar, dried flowers, mint and crushed red berries are all laced together in a silky, approachable, mid-weight Pomerol that will drink well upon release given its superb balance and sense of harmony.

Antonio Galloni, January 2019
