A pretty wine with delicate chocolate, pine nut and light spice. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a long finish. Better in 208.

This is clearly still young in terms of structure and primary fruit character, but it’s already beginning to soften, as is the character of the vintage. But that's where the easy shortcuts to the watery challenges of 2013 end, because this is packed full of flavour, with blueberry and redcurrant notes, sweet liquorice and cigar box and floral overtones. An impressive wine that underlines how underappreciated vintages can offer sweet spots if you know where to look. collapse

The palate is medium-bodied and well balanced, with slightly chalky tannin and decent depth of fruit, fresh and lively with an easy-going but quite edgy finish. Enjoy this Pensées de Lafleur over the next 6-8 years.- NM collapse
