Press review

Parker # 171 (6/1/2007) : 94 Maturity: -2037

Sadly, there are only 1,000 cases of the brilliant 2004 Lafleur (because of the strict selection implemented by proprietor Jacques Guinaudeau and his son, Baptiste). A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the 2004 presently possesses a certain austerity, along with fabulous concentration, and intense kirsch liqueur, licorice, truffle, and spice characteristics. Stunningly proportioned, medium to full-bodied, and powerful, it comes across like a modern day version of Lafleur’s brilliant 1979. The aromatics can fill a room, but the tannins kick in in the mouth. Give this Pomerol 5-8 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 25+.

Wine Spectator (3/30/2005) : 95-100

Fascinating aromas of plums, dried flowers and hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied and muscular. Long finish. This is very, very impressive. Racy and well-toned for the vintage. Very well-structured. -- J.S.
