The vineyard is 11 acres in size "d'un seul tenant". "Quality before Quantity" is the motto of the estate for the past 150 years. The tiny size of the vineyard, the miniscule yields and the draconian selection make Château Lafleur a vineyard jewel.

Wine AdvocateStill backward, but one of the great successes of the vintage, the 1994 still has a deep ruby/purple color, notes of plums, a hint of prunes, earth, truffle, and mineral. As the wine sits in the glass, some of the steely mineral Lafleur character emerges. This remains an excruciatingly tannic, backward, medium to full-bodied wine that needs plenty of cellaring. I am not so sure the tannins will always mesh, given the fact that this wine does not quite have the concentration that some of the other top vintages of Lafleur possess. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025. Last tasted, 12/02.
