Lafleur Pomerol 100js 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a crazy nose of tangerines and blueberries, with raspberries and mushroom and berries. Full-bodied, with ultra fine tannins. This wine is all about texture, with phenomenal tannins and subtle fruits that just make you think. Evocative. It is layered, yet changes all the time. I can't believe it really. Speechless. Amazes me...100" JS 2/12 "An absolutely prodigious blend of 55% Cabernet Franc and 45% Merlot, the 2009 Lafleur displays the tell-tale characteristics of this great estate. Kirsch liqueur, licorice and floral notes are intermixed with raspberry in a very full-bodied, super-intense, opulent and multi-dimensional style. Extraordinarily dense and pure, but not heavy by any means, the intensity, texture, and richness of the 2009 Lafleur are reminiscent of the perfect 1982...99" WA 2/12 "Tasted at John Armit’s Lafleur seminar in London, the 2009 is similar to the bottle tasted the previous November. The nose is a little more decadent than back then, with precocious black fruit, a sense of voluptuousness that presently overrides the mineral element. The palate is full-bodied with intense black fruits and enormous structure to support its weight. I think my analogy to a shire horse still stands...98" NM Wine Journal 04/12
