La Fleur Garderose is part of importer Neal Rosenthal's portfolio of steadfastly traditional Bordeaux. It's among the examples that remind you that Bordeaux is capable of haunting nuance, delicacy, and complexity.

The 2016 Bordeaux vintage is really stunning. It combines the presence and appealing textures of the 2015 with the purity and finesse of the 2010. It's an amazing combination: you get length, concentration, elegance, and precision.

La Fleur Garderose's 2016 is a shocking bottle. It boasts incredible completeness. There's beautiful detail, focus, and subtle complexity. The harmony and depth announces that it will age with total grace. 

Christophe Pueyo returned to his family's estate in 2010 and immediately elevated the already formidable estate to a new level. Leaning heavily on Cabernet Franc, La Fleur Garderose Saint-Emilion represents a selection of the best from the Pueyo family's Château Belregard Figeac. 

At as low as $38.95 per bottle, La Fleur Garderose Saint-Emilion highlights how there are serious Bordeaux values hiding in plain sight. The 2016 vintage really allowed the stars to align for this increasingly important estate. This is not to be missed.
