    June 16, 2017 - 1st of 6, decanted 2 hours, perfect cork and level - plummy, mat, red, dense, browning on rim; attractive complex bouquet, plum, truffle, touch of chocolate, iron and tobacco, very CF; less impressive palate, medium, long, quite persistent, drying lumpy tannins, fruit muted, fully ready. F (17.5).

    October 20, 2015 - Appearance: Bright and clear, it has medium ruby color, with garnet rims and legs.
    Nose: Clean, with medium intensity aromas of black fruit of plum and blackberry, herbal notes of mint, oak notes of cedar, sweet spice of clove, kernel notes of dark chocolate, animal notes of leather, mineral notes of earth, maturity notes of leather. The wine is developing.
    Palate: Dry with medium acidity, it has medium tannin of ripe and well-integrated texture, with medium alcohol and medium (+) body, medium intensity flavors of black fruit such as blackberry and dark cherries, oak notes of cedar, sweet spice of clove, kernel notes of dark chocolate. The wine has a medium (+) finish.
    Conclusion: Very good quality Pomerol, with good intensity and complex nose first showing a fairly minty characters upon opening, then gradually shifting to oaky note, with a nice black fruit background. The nose shifted to more chocolate and earthy later on. The wine has a nice and elegant structure, well balanced, with nice concentration and a long finish. Ready to drink now, the wine can be maintained for another 2-3 years.

    July 4, 2015 - Amazing floral nose with cherry and raspberry. Powerful, dense and a solid wine. It has good aging potential.

    March 25, 2014 - Another wow fragrance, another stunning Lafleur. Ripe dark fruits, cedar, dark chocolate and exotic spicy notes coming together into a lovely scent, powerful and long on the palate, though a little softer texturally and more open-knit than the '98.

    December 12, 2013 - A really nice wine. Opened and decanted for 2 hours. Dark purple in color with no sign of maturity. Huge sweet cherry nose bursting from the glass. Very different than when last tried 4 years ago where I described the nose as a Summer garden. Delicious blended palate of cherry, charcoal, earth with some minerality. No tannin and a long finish.
