Château Lafleur, Pomerol, 2002

Tasting Note:

"Tasted from an ex-chateau bottle at the Lafleur vertical dinner at Attersee in Austria. The 2002 Lafleur appeared to go into its shell for a few years, however this is the best bottle that I have encountered for some while. It has wonderful definition and vivacity on the nose with scents of blackberry and truffle – subtle notes of dried blood in the background coming from the Cabernet Franc. The palate is medium-bodied and seems to have softened just a little in recent years. There is impressive weight here, real presence in the mouth. Blackberry, graphite and bay leaf inform the middle and finish that is still a little foursquare, but has real vivacity. You sense that this Lafleur is only just beginning to show what it can do. Tasted June 2012."
