Overview of the Wine

Château Lafleur du Roy was created in 1958 by Yvon and Pâquerette Dubost, who came to viticulture through their vineyard nurseries. This family property of 4 hectares, located at 60 m altitude, exposed to the southwest, and enjoying a very good sunshine, has vines aged 40 to 45 years. The vineyard has a gravely sand soil with an abundant underlay of alios, more commonly known in the region as "iron filth". The vineyard is not weeded chemically but worked regularly. Finally, in order to preserve the quality of our wines, the grape harvest is entirely done by hand, with total destemming.

Tasting Notes

A rich, Merlot-dominated wine, this is opulent and packed with blackberry fruits. It has a great structure of tannins and ripe fruitiness. Bitter chocolate and coffee flavors give an extra complexity. The wine is still young, still full of juicy fruit.

Review by Ian Blackburn
At Lafleur du Roy they make two wines; this is the EXCELLENCE bottling, and appears to have a similar blend to the first wine. The predominant Merlot grape variety approx. (85%) is complemented by Cabernet Franc (10%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The color is solid, sustained with black reflections, the bouquet is rich and complex, expressing aromas of red fruits, as well as hints of leather and undergrowth. Palate fleshy, balanced, and harmonious, with good tannins of ripe fruit that evolve to a long and persistent finish. Beautiful material and tannic structure that will allow it to age well.
