Château Lafleur, Pomerol, 2007

Equiv. £402.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

A blockbuster even taken out of the context of the vintage, the 2007 Lafleur is the result of minimal interference in the vineyard and the belief that well-maintained vines can produce perfectly ripe fruit on their own (so no leaf-plucking here either). Typically foursquare and masculine in style, this is a concentrated wine with considerable balance, structure and depth; the fruit aromas are dark and wonderfully ripe, smoky blackberry with a wild edge and lots of minerally terroir; on the palate the minerals come through again, overlaid with flavours of spicy blueberry, brambles and blackcurrant, lots of backbone, serious character, and the finest of tannins on the finish. Outstanding. 1000 cases made of this grand vin, blended from 58% Merlot and 42% Cabernet Franc, representing 60% of the whole production.
