Formerly releases as the Act # series, the 2018 Les Perrieres De Lafleur gets its own name in 2018 as the team at Lafleur felt it finally met their expectations. Translating to the “stones of Lafleur,” the vineyard for this wine, which is mostly limestone, was planted from a massal selection from the Lafleur vineyard in Pomerol starting in 2005 and 2006. The first “Act” release was in 2009, and today this is a brilliant wine as well as one of the finest Fronsacs out there. Its ruby/purple color is followed by a beautiful bouquet of crème de cassis, kirsch liqueur, white flowers, and earthy minerality. Medium to full-bodied, incredibly floral and elegant on the palate, with ultra-fine tannins, it’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15+. If you find a bottle of this, you should buy it.
