2013 Lafleur-Gazin, Pomerol (Previously $40)

SKU #1158997 88-90 points Vinous

 Crushed flowers, sweet red berries and spices are some of the notes that emerge from the 2013 Lafleur-Gazin. A soft, graceful wine, the 2013 possesses good overall balance, but only modest depth, something that is quite evident on the finish, where the drying tannins are pronounced. (AG)  (4/2014)

Jancis Robinson

 Satisfyingly complete on the nose -- ripe black fruit, leather, cedar and bitter chocolate. A good brush of tannin on the finish, all in balance. Very nicely done. 17/20 points. Drink 2017 to 2027.  (4/2014)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Dark ruby-red. Coffee, dark plum and strawberry on the simple nose. Very clean, minty red berry flavors show more density than many other Pomerols in 2013. Finishes moderately persistent and refined, with a hint of leafiness. (ID)  (6/2014)

Wine Enthusiast

 Fresh and lightly structured, this is a crisp wine with tight acidity and black-currant fruitiness. A stalky element gives the wine a cool character. It will be ready to drink from 2017. (RV)  (3/2016)

Wine Spectator

 Tasty, with juicy raspberry and boysenberry coulis flavors that stay racy through the anise- and savory-edged finish. Not big, but fresh and pure. This takes what the vintage gave. (JM, Web-2016)

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
