The 2015 Lafleur has a broody but intense bouquet with exquisite definition and top quality Cabernet Franc showing through. This just has to be Lafleur! The palate is extremely well balanced with gentle grip, almost powdery in texture and demonstrating enormous depth and persistence on the finish. It is nowhere near ready but it will be a wonderful Pomerol. There is a sense of audacity here that is compelling. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
Tasted blind. Juicy and opulent but not too sweet. So reverberant! It’s all on the finish, which is a tad drying but it’s a good wine.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2040
