Tasting Note:

"In spite of being made primarily from Cabernet Franc, with little Merlot in the blend, this wine appears to be shaping into form, although it will undoubtedly require 15-20 years of cellaring. The color is a dense purple, and the wine is austere yet classic. The aromatics consist of cherry and black raspberry fruit intermixed with kirsch, minerals, and truffles. The wine is full-bodied, ferociously tannic, and superbly concentrated, but the searing tannin is likely to scare off all but the most adventurous tasters. This Lafleur will probably age for 50-60 years. But, when will it ever be drinkable?"

90/91+/100 - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, February 1998
