Situated on the northern edge of the plateau of Pomerol, nestled between Châteaux Gazin and La Fleur-Pétrus, this wine has been produced by the Moueix family since 1976. The terroir here is cooler than Lagrave and the style of fruit shows.

Such gorgeous aromas of blackberries, blueberries and crushed stones. Fresh flowers, too. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a clean, round-textured finish. [01/04/2021]
The 2020 Lafleur-Gazin had a touch more cohesion here at J-P Moueix’s offices compared to the sample tasted at home and therefore I feel it merits a higher score. Tasted at J-P Moueix in Libourne. [Neal Martin, 24/06/2021]
