WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2000
A marvelous Lafleur full-bodied with supple tannins offering lovely mineral earth and black fruit character. Smooth and ripe from start to finish.--Château Lafleur vertical. Drink now through 2020. -PM

No matter how much airing I have given this wine, it does not ever seem to emerge from its cloak of tannin and structure. The fruit seems sweet, and the wine has Lafleur’s telltale notes of kirsch liqueur intermixed with raspberries, minerals, flowers, and truffles. The wine is medium-bodied, weighty in the mouth, but so, so tannic and backward. Will it ever blossom? Anticipated maturity: 2008-2035. - Robert Parker
