User Reviews for Chateau Lafleur

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: The 2005 Lafleur is tight and austere at present, but unquestionably enormously<br/>endowed. It displays a dense ruby/purple hue as well as a beautiful bouquet<br/>that only emerges with coaxing. Aeration is essential in order to release the<br/>subtle, restrained scents of licorice, kirsch liqueur, black truffles, and<br/>flowers. In the mouth, there is compelling richness, depth, and intensity, but<br/>the wine's power, full body, forbiddingly backward style, and high<br/>tannins suggest significant cellaring will be required. <br/>(Robert Parker- Wine Advocate - Apr 08)
