IWC 93
Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 2008
(ST90-93 points) Good deep ruby-red. Complex nose melds black plum musky chocolate licorice menthol and fresh herbs. Sweet dense ripe and silky with lovely life and palate coverage. Pure and harmonious from the outset... (ST90-93 points) Good deep ruby-red. Complex nose melds black plum musky chocolate licorice menthol and fresh herbs. Sweet dense ripe and silky with lovely life and palate coverage. Pure and harmonious from the outset with a firm architecture for the year. Finishes a bit strict but not hard with a smoky nuance and lovely length. Pomerol does not get much better than this in 2007. The alcohol here will be in the low 13s.

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Lafleur has a beautifully composed bouquet with scents of black cherry, truffle, iron piping and a touch of mint. It is very well defined, nicely focused and full of breeding. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, a superb seam of acidity, good body and presence in the mouth. I adore the ferrous aspect of this Lafleur married with the sense of energy conveyed towards the finish—an off-vintage Pomerol that seems to be flourishing with bottle age. Superb. Tasted February 2017. - Neal Martin

Perfumed fruity and aromatic with licorice and berry on the nose. Full-bodied with a solid core of ripe fruit and a spicy almost raisiny character on the palate. Long and very soft and silky with a lovely core. A little... Perfumed fruity and aromatic with licorice and berry on the nose. Full-bodied with a solid core of ripe fruit and a spicy almost raisiny character on the palate. Long and very soft and silky with a lovely core. A little austere but with wonderful concentration for the vintage. Racy and sweet. Best after 2013. -JS

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, September 2013

This 2007 is a real turn up for the books. It has a dusty, slightly foursquare bouquet with cedar and graphite infusing the carapace of blackberry and raspberry fruit. It is well defined but certainly very conservative. The palate is medium-bodied with a dense, introverted entry. Just when you think it is not going to perform up to the estate’s usual standards, it dovetails into this gorgeous, corpulent, Merlot-driven finish this is pure and primal. Amazing how last year this 2007 was so closed and unyielding. Perhaps this will not be so much of a long-term Lafleur, but it is very delicious.

Delicious aromas and flavors of kirsch and licorice emerge from the dark ruby-hued 2007 Lafleur (a blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc).

Delicious aromas and flavors of kirsch and licorice emerge from the dark ruby-hued 2007 Lafleur (a blend of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc). It is a medium-bodied round luscious cuvee revealing more density than most of its peers. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.
