An 11 acre Pomerol property growing 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot with yields of 30 hectolitres per hectare.  Lafleur only produces 1000 cases per year, with the second wine, Penseees de Lafleur producing 250 cases.  The wine stays in oak barrels (up to half in new oak) for 18-20 months before being fined with fresh egg whites.  Lafleur is considered one of the few wines of Pomerol capable of challenging (and sometimes surpassing) the great Petrus.  Old-vine Cabernet Franc certainly gives Lafleur its complexity and the tiny yields echo the motto ‘Quality surpasses quantity’, making this great chateau a rare and highly sought-after wine.
