Located on the right bank of the Bordeaux region, Chateau La Fleur is a beautiful property classified as a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru and belonging to the Dassault family. Chateau La Fleur offers wines reflecting the typical character of the great terroirs of Saint-Emilion.
Chateau La Fleur reigns over an exceptional vineyard, spread over 27.5 hectares on the northern plateau of Saint-Emilion. Aged 33 years on average, the vines are planted in clay-limestone soils.
Manual harvest between September 26 and October 10. Density sorting. Plot vinification in concrete tanks and thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks.
Aging in barrels for 15 to 16 months. New French oak barrels (75%), barrels of one previous wine (25%).
Merlot (94%), cabernet franc (4%), cabernet sauvignon (2%).
Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau La Fleur 2019 is a wine that offers a beautiful purple color with purple reflections. Notes of blackcurrant, redcurrants and small black fruits spring forth from the glass and immediately charm the nose. On the palate, the attack is fruity, evolving into a balanced and elegant mid-palate. The tannins are precise and well-integrated, giving the Chateau La Fleur 2019 a juicy structure. A delicious Saint-Emilion that can be enjoyed in its youth for the more impatient wine lover, or kept for several years to evolve in the bottle.
