Château Lafleur Gazin

Château Lafleur Gazin 2015

Wine Spectator - James Suckling - March 31, 2018

91 Points "Ripe, with a silky and refined structure that lets alluring plum, cassis and bitter cherry fruit flavors glide through, inlaid with singed apple wood details and a light tobacco thread. The fruit is persistent, showing a flash of savory at the very end."

Wine Spectator - James Molesworth - March 31, 2013

92 Points - Smart Buy "Fleshy, with mouthfilling plum, melted licorice, fruitcake and linzer torte pumping through the broad, well-toasted finish. A not shy-style." - James Suckling - March 06, 2013

91 Points "Expressive sweet nose with candied violets, blackberry and chocolate. Very sweet almost jammy fruit on the palate with lots of blueberries. Full-bodied with ripe, but still quite firm tannins. Nice intense fruit on the palate."

Wine Spectator - James Molesworth - June 15, 2011

89 Points "Offers solid flesh for the vintage, with dark fig, currant and anise notes laced with roasted apple wood and spice. A graphite streak on the finish adds length and weight."

The Wine Advocate - Robert Parker - April 2009

88-89 points "A deep ruby color is followed by notes of licorice, damp earth, forest floor, and red as well as black fruits. Medium to full-bodied with excellent purity, sweet tannin, and a plump, fleshy mouthfeel, the excellent 2008 Lafleur-Gazin should drink well for 10-12 years."

Château Lafleur Gazin 2007 Archived REVIEWS

Wine Spectator Online - James Suckling - 2007

88 Points "Fresh blackberry, with chocolate, cedar and light vanilla character. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. A balanced red, with a delicate finish. Best after 2009."

Château Lafleur Gazin 2005 Archived REVIEWS

Wine Spectator - James Suckling - March 31, 2008

91 Points "Has berry and chocolate character, with hints of spice. Full-bodied, yet reserved and refined, with silky, tender tannins. Pretty and subtle. Best after 2013."

Château Lafleur Gazin 2004 Archived REVIEWS

QRW - Richard Elia - November 2010

"Expect a soft texture, easy tannins, plum flavors, and lively berry fruit. It's an excellent wine to be drinking now, with a finish that is rounding firmly and smoothly."

Château Lafleur Gazin 2001 Archived REVIEWS

Washington Post - Ben Giliberti - December 15, 2004

"The 2001 establishes Chateau Lafleur-Gazin as a legitimate member of the near-Petrus fraternity. With aromas of smoky oak, blackberry, and cherry, this succulent medium-to full-bodied Pomerol is delicious now but has the stuffing to benefit from three to five years of cellaring."

The Wine Advocate - Robert Parker - June 2004

89 Points "Lafleur-Gazin is making better and better wines, and their 2001 is probably as good as their 2000. Exhibiting more structure and tannin than it did prior to bottling, it possesses a deep ruby color with purple nuances as well as aromas of licorice, plums, cherries, incense, and earth. Medium-bodied, with a ripe attack, this elegant effort's structure and tanning closes down the finish. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 10-12."
