DescriptionChateau Lafleur 1997
"I liked the 1997 Lafleur more than the 1996. It is one of those rare Lafleurs that lucky purchasers will be able to drink at a young age. An impressively saturated dense ruby/purple color is followed by the classic Lafleur aromas - jammy black raspberries, kirsch liqueur, prunes, and minerals. Forward, full-bodied, and sexy, with an unctuous texture, and gobs of sweet tannin, this is a luxurious, evolved Lafleur that will provide gorgeous drinking in 2-3 years, and last for two decades. The only other vintage of Lafleur that tasted this evolved and satiny at such a youthful age was the 1983." (91-93 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #116, Apr. 1998)
Estimate: $2,600 - $3,500.
