Chateau Lafleur Pomerol 2000

13.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

The Château Lafleur 2000 is a monumental wine. Imagine a Harley Davidson thundering down the tarmac. Wouldn’t you want to get on? It has an extremely intense, but ineffably pure nose with more mineral expression than the Lafleur 1995. It has loosened up a little since I last tasted it, but I concur with Robert Parker that if I were lucky enough to have some of these in my cellar, I would wait until 2020 to experience the wine at its plateau. Allowing the wine to open over 30 minutes, I notice an almost flinty scent developing on the bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied, crystalline and symmetrical—everything beautifully focused—almost Left Bank in texture. This had a firm backbone, but that is becoming more “flexible” in recent years, and it fans out with consummate ease on a finish that is so long that it makes “War and Peace” seem like a short read. This is simply magnificent. Tasted February 2015. 100RP. 2020-2060
