Societe Civile du Chateau Lafleur - Les Perrières 2020
Founded in 2018 by Julie and Baptiste Guinaudeau, Les Perrières is a novel interpretation of the unique Bouchet de Lafleur, translated through the great limestone terroir of the Fronsac region. Les Perrières derives from four adjacent parcels on the plateau of Meyney. Manual harvest is performed with double sorting at the vineyard and a third sorting at the cellar.
It has an exceptionally pure bouquet of intense black berry and blueberry fruit, crushed stone and touches of Japanese nori. The medium-bodied palate is structured, tensile and very saline, with taut tannins and that limestone-driven pixelation clearly apparent on the finish. Vibrant, almost steely. Neal Martin 92-94 points.
