    Description

    Chateau Lafleur 1975
    Pomerol
    1bn, 1ts, 2lbsl
    Bottle (2)
    "At one time a perfect wine, my three-digit score has dropped simply because I am not sure the huge tannins this wine possesses will ever fully melt away. Nevertheless, it is still one of the greatest wines I have ever tasted for its tremendous singularity and intensity. The color is still a murky plum/purple that shows a bit of amber at the edge. The nose is strikingly intense, with an almost liquid minerality intermixed with fig, truffle, spice, plum, and black cherry as well as blueberry. In the mouth the wine is massive, with searing levels of tannins, but monumental levels of extract and concentration." (98pts Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 4th Ed., Jan 2003)
