Tasting Note:

Pensees de Lafleur is one of the most serious and intellectual second wines on the market today. Produced from 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc from a complex terroir of sand over clay on deep gravel, the 2009 offers wonderfully high toned aromas of cherry blossom, griotte cherries, fine herbs, flowers and minerals as well as brooding notes of coal. The Merlot contributes rich, ripe flavours of purple fruit and heady liqueur fruits as well as a velvety, sumptuous texture, whilst the Cabernet Franc delivers structure and a refreshing sappiness. The overall result is spectacular; this is detailed, with great intensity and very stylish, polished tannins.
