Wine Advocate 89 points - Tasted at the offices of Ets J-P Moueix, to be honest, I actually prefer the aromatics on the Lafleur-Gazin to the Belair-Monange tasted alongside. Here, I find the aromas more defined, showcasing some lovely pure dark cherry and plum-infused fruit that is neatly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with a firm grip. This is quite a bold Lafleur-Gazin - quite masculine with a firm backbone and although it does not quite possess the persistency on the finish, I think this will mature very well. Tasted November 2012. (Mar 2013)
This lovely property located between Château LAFLEUR and Château GAZIN has belonged to the same family for three generations and has been farmed by Ets. JeanPierre MOUEIX since 1976.
The vines, of an average age of 30 years, are planted on soils of gravel and clay for the Merlot and silt where the Cabernet Franc shows its full character. The vineyard management and the vinification are carried out traditionally and with the same care as on the other Ets. Jean-Pierre MOUEIX properties.
Château LAFLEUR-GAZIN generally has a deep colour, a vivid nose and a good texture backed up by a firm tannic structure. It definitely needs to be kept a few years
for full enjoyment
