Pensées de Lafleur, Pomerol, 2013

Tasting Note:

Pensees de Lafleur is a rare beast in 2013. It is a second wine that really excels in this challenging vintage. As a general rule, this is a year where second labels are rather lacklustre. But the Guinaudeaus have produced a Pensees that is right up there with others' Grand Vins. It is not a blockbuster; it relies on its charm and refinement to seduce. The bouquet is quite reserved, a brooding melting pot of flowers, minerals sweet cherry fruit. This is extremely suave, with a beautiful core of cool fruit. Refined, graceful, elegant, it has the appearance of a delicate waif, but there is ample structure and concentration to age this for many years to come. A very serious second wine. 59% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Franc.
