Another excellent value Pomerol from Decanter Man of the Year, Christian Moueix. Like his whole range, Lafleur Gazin provides compelling evidence of the success of Pomerol in 2007, combining fleshiness and minerality with finely textured, ripe tannins. Unlike so many wines in 2007 it is pleasingly plump in the middle too. Well-situated between the two châteaux that make up its name, Lafleur and Gazin, the wine is made from a typical Pomerol mix of 80% Merlot and 20 Cabernet Franc. A restrained but rich focused nose of fresh plums, blackberry and chocolate is followed by a soft and stylish fruity palate with notes of pepper and a ripe, warm dark fruit finish.
