Description

    Chateau Lafleur 1996
    Pomerol
    2owc
    Bottle (12)
    "Warm and round on the nose though much lighter than, say, the 1999. Hint of mossiness. Very mellow and lively too. Quite gentle and evolved. Beautiful balance. Great freshness." (17pts JR, Dec 2007)

    "As I suspected, the 1996 Lafleur is a painfully backward, austere wine that represents a modern day clone of this estate's 1966. It possesses a backward, tannic, Medoc-like character, with none of Pomerol's hallmark generosity. The wine exhibits a saturated dark purple color, as well as a distinctive mineral, black raspberry, and berry-scented nose with the steely, mineral Lafleur character well-displayed." (90 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #122, Apr. 1999)
