Tasting Notes

The 2011 Les Pensees de Lafleur is a blend of 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc. Juicy raspberry and herbal notes are accompanied by a medium-bodied mouthfeel, excellent ripeness and texture, and a savory, forward component. This 2011 should drink well for 10-15 years.

Score: 87/89+Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (2000), April 2012

Lots of blueberry and mineral character for the vintage. Hints of vanilla oak. Full body with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. Needs bottle age to come together completely. Try in 2017.

Score: 93James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2014

This is very minerally with a peach stone and brambleberry character. Full body, with delicately chewy tannins and a long length. Very refined. Very well done for the second wine of Lafleur that made a top 2011. 54% Merlot and 46% Cabernet Franc.

Score: 92/93James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2012

The second wine of Chateau Lafleur. Tiny quantities are produced of this Pomerol

 Farr Vintners, March 2012

Lively, fresh and floral. Marked by the Cabernet Franc (46%). Clearly not the depth and intensity of the 'grand vin' but very close in style.
