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+

TASTING NOTES

95% Sauvignon Blanc, 5% Sémillon. Barrel sample. Slightly cloudy. Keen and fresh. Lemon-citrus fragrance with a chalky edge. Sweet touch on attack indicates maturity, thereafter the palate is long, linear, and direct. More restrained than Grand Village but great harmony and persistence. Just goes on and on. Class act and a long, long way from varietal Sauvignon. JR
