Pensées de Lafleur, Pomerol, 2017

Tasting Note:

The early mornings were definitely worth the effort! Pensees de Lafleur 2017 is absolutely exquisite. It is perhaps the most Lafleur like Pensees to date with a dash more Cabernet Franc than normal (48%). Pensees always comes from a 0.5 hectare seam that cuts a diagonal strip across the vineyard. There is a clear dip here, which exposes a more normal Pomerol terroir without the top layer of gravel. The Cabernet really sings with aromas of violets, tobacco, cloves, tayberry and minerals. It really is quite haunting. On the palate, the fruit profile remains floral and fluid with layers of fine cassis, cranberry and pure, vibrant griotte. This is so complete and seductive, a thoroughly sleek and cohesive wine from a wonderful terroir. Exceptional.
