2011 Château Lafleur, Pomerol, Bordeaux


Ch. Lafleur has a brooding nose of violet, forest fruit and woodland notes. It is really intriguing, with power building up and up, followed by a precise mineral edge. One of the more concentrated palates of the vintage, it has layers of fruit but with the finesse and delicacy that is a hallmark for the year. Tannins add a touch of spice and fresh acidity cuts through the fruit, offering great finesse on the finish. This is one of the wines of the vintage and a stunning Lafleur.
