    The Typicity of a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

    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.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2018 La Fleur is deep garnet-purple colored and offers fragrant earth, sautéed herbs and tilled soil over baked black plums and stewed cherries. The palate is full, firm and chewy with earthy flavors and an herbal lift on finish.
