The second wine, the 2008 Les Pensees de Lafleur, a blend of 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Franc, is a richly fruity, seductive, sensual effort that should be drinkable young, and last for 10-15 years.. The tiny Lafleur vineyard, which was harvested between October 8-14, produced a wine with an atypically high percentage of Cabernet Franc. Proprietor Guinadeau stated that the Cabernet Franc was among the finest he had ever harvested. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 182

Sweet plum, strawberry and raspberry fruit character on the nose and palate. Full and silky, with lovely fruit and a long finish. Minerally undertone. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2009
