Very deep and dark fruits on the nose with black mushrooms and wet earth and just a hint of stones. Touch of rust. Full-bodied, tight and focused. Lots of tannins yet this is so polished under the surface of the wine. Draws you in and holds you with its unique personality. Some tile and clay character to it. Makes you think. Try in 2025.
The 2015 Lafleur is a blend of 54% Cabernet Franc and 46% Merlot. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it's profoundly scented of plum preserves, chocolate-covered cherries and blueberry pie with nuances of black olives, lavender, unsmoked cigars and cast iron pan plus a touch of Indian spices. The rich, medium to full-bodied palate is completely packed with tightly wound fragrant earth, black fruit and exotic spice layers, supported by perfectly ripe, wonderfully velvety tannins and seamless freshness. The epically long finish delivers a sum that is greater than the many compelling characters imparted on the nose and palate, whispering promises of a whole myriad of provocative finishes to discover throughout this wine's very long future. This exquisite masterpiece is not to be missed. (LPB)
The 2015 Lafleur has an exquisite, detailed bouquet with pure, intoxicating scents of blackberry, cranberry, rose petals and crushed stone, gradually opening to reveal more marine-like elements that lend more personality, and another dimension to the wine. The palate is medium-bodied with layers of red fruit tinged with truffle. I observe the "arching" structure that has been evident since en primeur, a quite brilliant wine that will sit comfortably alongside the 1982, 2000 and 2010. Tasted in Bordeaux. (NM)
