(ST90-93 points) Very good deep red-ruby color. Initially mute nose opens to reveal a sappy black cherry and licorice aroma, but no sign of the superripe quality found in the best Lafleurs from decades past. Dense and extremely backward in the mouth; displays a very primary iodiney/fruit pit quality and excellent sweetness. Powerfully structured and quite tannic; this will require at least a decade of bottle aging. An impressive wine, but today's Lafleur lacks the sauvage splendor of vintages like '75, '79, '83 and '86.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, January 2009
Medium-deep garnet color going brick at the rim. A somewhat unpleasant mushroom character dominated the nose to begin but dissipated with air / time.This gave way to more interesting notes of leather, truffles, prunes... Medium-deep garnet color going brick at the rim. A somewhat unpleasant mushroom character dominated the nose to begin but dissipated with air / time.This gave way to more interesting notes of leather, truffles, prunes, forest floor and a vague whiff of tomato leaf. This was generally a very well structured wine with medium+ acidity and a medium+ level of velvety tannins. Yet I was slightly, only slightly, disappointed with the fruit, which is already starting to dry-out. Long finish. Drink now – 2018. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
