jamessuckling.com, April 2019

The sweetness of fruit in the center palate is incredible with a ripe-plum and currant undertone. Very aromatic already. Full-bodied, tight and compressed with a tannin quality that folds beautifully into the wine...

So subtle and complex with blackberry, blueberry, fresh bark, fresh black truffles and light wet earth, as well as forest floor. Full-bodied, yet linear and so long with an amazingly polished and refined tannin structure...

( 98-100) Let's get this out of the way from the start: No risk, no fun. Right? This is the wine of the vintage! There, I said it. Now, let me explain why... On the palate, you encounter serious levels of weight and...

This could be the wine of the vintage! Profound in every sense, the wine smells like you walked into a flower shop carrying a bushel of just picked red and black pit fruits and berries and your pockets were filled with an...

janeanson.com, September 2021

Always a wine that requires time in bottle, and the 2018 is extremely closed down at three years old. Cabernet Franc dominates in expression, with layers of cool blueberry and blackcurrant fruits, needing a good 30...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2021

(98+ points) The 2018 Lafleur is a blend of 54% Cabernet Franc and 46% Merlot. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the nose absolutely shuts down upon first pour. After a lot of air, it slowly unfurls to reveal...
WS 94

Wine Spectator, January 2019

(91-94 points) The dark plum and cherry preserve flavors are fleshy in feel, with singed cedar and tobacco notes filling in through the finish. A touch woodsy in the end, but there's enough fruit to soak that up. Drink...
