Dunkles Purpur mit lila Schimmer. Tiefes Bouquet, mineralischer Schimmer, viel reife Pflaumen, sogar ein gewisser Anhang von Dörrfrüchten. Im Gaumen eine enorme Konzentration aufweisend, innen gebündelte Gerbstoffe zeigend, rote Beeren, gekochte Kirschen, viel Kräuternoten wie Thymian und Kamille, die Adstringenz im Rachenraum zeigt einen verlangenden, eher strengen Lafleur mit einem immensen Potenzial.

95RP: `The 2006 Lafleur which I had not tasted from bottle prior to this visit merits 95 points. One of the vintates most brilliant wines this blend of 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Franc is neither as dense nor complete as the 2008 but it is structured closed and austere (as are many 2006s at present). It reveals a plum/purple color along with a beautifully sweet nose of black and red fruits intermixed with incense as well as a steely/iron-like smell. More open on the palate than the 2008 with more obvious spice and earthy undertones this powerful Lafleur should be drinkable in 5-7 years and will last for three decades.` 93WS: `This starts off very slow then opens to violet and lilac with crushed raspberry and strawberry. Full-bodied with racy intense acidity and tannins. Powerful and layered with wonderful subtle fruit and a long finish. Best after 2015.


Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: A terrific example of Lafleur, the 2006...is almost as good as their brilliant<br/>2005. From yields of 28-32 hectoliters per hectare and a strict selection,<br/>proprietor Jacques Guinadeau used most of the young vine production in<br/>Lafleur's second wine, Les Pensees, so there are only 1,000 or so cases<br/>of 2006 Lafleur. A noteworthy success, it boasts a deep ruby/purple color as<br/>well as a sumptuous bouquet of black cherries, kirsch liqueur, licorice, and<br/>minerals, sweet tannin, and a medium to full-bodied style....The 2006 will<br/>require a decade of cellaring, and should keep for four decades or more. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Feb-2009)
