WS95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2007
Starts off slow, then cascades like a waterfall. Full and superlong, this is structured and racy. Tight and in reserve. A classic beauty for the vintage. -J.S.

A terrific example of Lafleur, the 2006 (61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Franc) may be as good as their brilliant 2005. From yields of 28-32 hectoliters per hectare and a strict selection, proprietor Jacques Guinadeau used most of the young vine production in Lafleurâ_Ts second wine, Les Pensees, so there are only 1,000 or so cases of 2006 Lafleur. A noteworthy success, it boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of black cherries, kirsch liqueur, licorice, and minerals, sweet tannin, and a medium to full-bodied style. It is reminiscent of a richer, more bulked up, concentrated version of the 1999 or 1995. The 2006 will require a decade of cellaring, and should keep for four decades or more.
