Product Description

Chateau La Fleur Morange ChaiChâteau la Fleur Morange is a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe made by Véronique and Jean-François Julien and renowned consultant oenologist Claude Gros. The little vineyard lies in Saint-Pey-D’Armens and La Fleur Morange is receiving high acclaim from wine critics the world over, including Jancis Robinson and Robert Parker. The vineyard is a 4 acre plot of unique soil with the added rarity of having vines that are 100 years old. The soil is sand and clay layers over limestone and clinker sub soil – the only complex mixture known to exist in Saint Emilion.

Château la Fleur Morange 2007 will pair well with game: venison, wild boar, pheasant, guinea fowl and partridge as well as roast beef, lamb and duck.  Due to the wine’s dense complexity it enhances the fragrances and flavours of rich country casseroles, strong cheeses and Asian cuisine.

Chateau La Fleur Morange and foodCritics Scores:  Robert Parker, 92 points:
A serious effort, the 2007 La Fleur Morange is one of the vintage’s top wines. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of raspberries, incense, Christmas fruitcake, and spice box. Surprisingly full-bodied with good density and richness, this is a big yet velvety textured wine to drink over the next decade or more.

Steven Spurrier:
“Purple red, very good young colour, lively and crunchy nose, clear and clean with none of the 2007 greenness and the fragrance of Cabernet Franc is present and stays on the palate, a really well-made wine with vigour and purity and a good future.  17.5.”
