Château Lafleur Pomerol
A stunning rich purple. The nose is spicy, cedar and black pepper with an obvious. The attack is intense, with black olives, tapenade, raspberry leaf, bristling with intent.
International Wine CellarGood dark red. Currant, minerals, graphite and nutty oak, along with some funkier notes of leather and musky tobacco. Supple, deep and fine-grained but with a cooler character than the 2005. Less black and more red in character than the 2005, throwing off notes of raspberry, mocha, coffee, leather and underbrush. Finishes with substantial, slightly edgy tannins. This one will be fascinating to follow.
