- Product Description
A light vintage for Bordeaux, which suffered from a difficult flowering. It was a small harvest at Lafleur, especially for the Merlot, but fortunately the Cabernet Franc more than compensated. It makes up 65% of the final blend and gives some genuine plush intensity. It's very pure and sweetly-fruited, with blueberry, delicate cedar and tobacco. It has super-fresh acidity, fine grained tannins and an elegant mid-weight structure. Indecently young, this needs plenty of time to unfurl the inevitable Lafleur flourish of complexity. Drink 2022-2036.
