Produced in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation, the Chateau La Fleur 2018 offers a typical expression of the great terroirs of Saint-Emilion.
Located on the right bank of the Bordeaux region, Chateau La Fleur boasts an exceptional vineyard, spread over 26.5 hectares on the northern plateau of Saint-Emilion. Aged 33 years on average, the vines are planted on clay-limestone soils.
The Chateau La Fleur 2018 is made from a blend of Merlot (92%), Cabernet Franc (2%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (2%). This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru is aged in barrels of new oak (75%) and oak with one previous use (25%) for 15 to 16 months, depending on the nature of the fruit from each parcel.
The Chateau La Fleur 2018 displays in the glass a lovely dark purple, almost black, color. The nose evolves elegant notes of ripe fruit, including plum, black cherry and blackberry. On the palate, the vintage already has a very fine balance and great finesse, structured by elegant tannins. This vintage lingers long on the finish.
