  1. 2009 Château Lafleur

    1. Wine like this, leave you speechless! Where do you start? The nose, with its earthy, floral, truffle scents paired with a melange of plum, cherry and black raspberry is only the starter course. The entree is incredibly concentrated, refined, powerful, and elegant, all at the same time. The finish never seems to quit. Quite young and primary, this only offers a glimpse into the wines greatness, which will happen in the years to come.

    2. Not quite as expressive as it was a year ago, (Which is to be expected) this is pure, hedonistic pleasure with perfectly ripe fruits, exotic, velvet textures and a long finish that does not want to quit.

    3. Holy Cow! Silky, velvet drenched decadence. The wine starts in the middle of your palate with sweet, ripe berries. Before you know it, your entire palate with decadent, sweet, opulent, sensuous, intense layers of fresh, ripe, and over ripe, fruits that remain in your mouth for close to one minute!!! I hope some of my friends bought this stunning wine because I'd really like to taste this in 5, 10, 15 and 20 years. If you have the funds to lay down one of the best wines you will ever experience, this is the wine to buy.

    4. From a blend of 57% Cabernet Franc and 43% Merlot , this Pomerol wine opens with caramel, flowers, truffle, black cherry, plum, licorice and earthy scents. This wine offers the unique combination of concentration, power, silk and velvet. On the palate, this is a pure, sensuous, flamboyant expression of wild cherry, Vahlrona chocolate, melted licorice and plum liqueur. This sublime expression of Bordeaux wine remains on your palate for close to 60 sixty seconds in a seamless finish. This was one of the few samples that was far too good to spit. Now, what did I do with that winning Lottery ticket? 98-99 Pts

    5. 2009 Lafleur was produced from 47% merlot and 53% cabernet franc. Its 14% alcohol could be the highest level recorded by the property, yet there is no sensation of heat. This opaque wine blasts from your glass with blackberry, blueberry, and kirsch aromas, made complex by notes of spice, soil, clay, flowers, and minerals, with a little truffle thrown in. This concentrated, velvet textured wine fills every nook and cranny of your palate with the flavors of dark berries. Like all great vintages of Lafleur, the 2009 will require at least two decades before opening up. 96-98 Pts
