Intensely aromatic with deep and complex flavours that have the ability to be kept and matured. Stunningly good value!
Owned by Château Lafitte - but not That One! Therein lies a sore subject with the Chateau. Built in the early 19th century, this imposing building made of honeycoloured stone is the heart of a magnificent 27 hectare estate located near Yvrac between the city of Bordeaux and Libourne. Situated in the Bordeaux Supérieur appellation, in a place named Lafitte, the estate dates back to the late 18th century.
Until the 1980s, it was sold as... Château Lafitte (!), and belonged to M. Floréal-Laguens, a man with a strong personality. After many trials and tribulations between the estate and the famous Château of (nearly - only one 't') the same name, it was deemed that the name Lafitte would no longer appear on the label, and the wine is now sold as Château Floréal Laguens. The estate (as opposed to the wine) where the wine is bottled retains the name Château Lafitte - and now belongs to the Bonhur family.
