Description

The Guinaudeau family caused quite a stir last year with the announcement that the project entitled “G Acte” was being renamed Les Perrières. After 9 Actes the time had arrived to take the next step and announce something more permanent. The Acte series was a prelude, now it was time for the main event.  This limestone version of Chateau Lafleur is an outstanding example of what the family’s approach can achieve in different terroirs using their clonal material planted on 3.3 hectares of limestone soils.
  • Production Notes

  • Delivery Information

In 2019 Les Perrières consists of 59% Bouchet and 41% Merlot with the Merlot being harvested a week earlier in late September.  This is the second vintage of Perrières and the enthusiasm from the estate for this wine is difficult to contain: a fabulous wine!

Nestled next door to Pomerol’s Petrus, Chateau Lafleur measures a mere 4.5ha, planted almost exactly with half Cabernet Franc and half Merlot. Since the Guinaudeau family took control of production, an already highly regarded cru has reached greater heights, with more obsessive precision of selection and timing of picking, as well as more nuanced use of barrels. Combining their mineral expression of Merlot, with the perfume and complexity of Cabernet Franc, the Guineaudeau family has managed to create some of the most elegant, long-lived and collectible wines in Bordeaux.
