Tasting Notes

A terrific example of Lafleur, the 2006 ?.. is almost as good as their brilliant 2005 ?.. 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. Drink: 2019 - 2059." Wine Advocate, February 2009, Robert Parker 93-95+
