Full body with super-integrated tannins and a beautiful finish. This is fantastic for the second wine of Lafleur although the owner says the wine comes from a specfic part of the vineyard. 52% merlot and 48% cabernet franc. Try in 2016. collapse

Baptiste told me that a new plot of Cabernet Franc that was planted 11 years ago was blended into Pensées de Lafleur for the first time. It has a superb bouquet with great minerality pretty notes of redcurrant and crushed strawberry with a hint of stone. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent spicy opening. The tannins have a slightly chalky texture but there is good weight in the middle leading to a structure but not over-powering finish that displays very fine precision. Tasted April 2012. collapse
