Join us for a very special kind of a fine wine experience ­ the chance to taste through four decades of Chateau Lafleur.

Sitting alongside (geographically and in quality) Chateau Petrus as the greatest of Pomerol estates, its character sits somewhere between the refined power of Petrus, and the elegance and fragrance of Cheval Blanc (also a near neighbour).

Once it begins to mature its fragrance ­ like Cheval, coming from 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot ­ is dazzling, alluring, enthralling (!), and on the palate there is both a sumptuous opulence of fruit, and a high tensile character in the tannins and overall mouthfeel. Lafleur is never an easy sort of wine. When drinking it I am often left just sitting there processing its sheer complexity and length of flavour.

It is an absolute favourite. But it is also super rare.
