What the experts say...
"Dense purple to the rim, with a superb bouquet of acacia flowers, blueberries, black currants, and crushed rocks, the wines oak component is completely obscured by the wealth of fruit and overall rich, concentrated style." Source : R. Parker (04/2008)
This wine combines finesse and smoothness, with delicious complementary flavours from the Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Revealing powerful fruit, the palate is long, tannic and well-balanced.
Spread across the slopes of a hill overlooking the Dordogne valley, Saint Emilion is a small medieval town that has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its vineyards have an excellent reputation, and are spread over nine communes with a very wide range of terroirs. The limestone plateau and clay-limestone slopes produce richly coloured, full-bodied, well-structured wines. Towards Pomerol, the gravel soil produces more refined wines. Traditional Bordeaux grape varieties are grown here, with a predominance of Merlot. Only the best wines are entitled to the Grand Cru appellation, most of which are located on the edge of the limestone plateau and the clay-limestone slopes.
The vineyard that produces la Fleur Morange is planted in sandy-clay soil on an iron-rich limestone subsoil. Like other garage wines, it is vinified using very modern techniques. Furthermore, the yields from the almost 100-year-old vines are strictly controlled, through rigorous pruning and leaf removal. The wine is matured in new oak barrels for 18 months before being bottled without fining or filtration.
