Average Score 94.0

Black truffles, with intense ripe blackberry and black cherry. Superperfumed. Very spicy, with brown sugar and meaty undertones. Full-bodied, with supertight, powerful tannins and a long and rich finish. This is a weight lifter on the palate for its muscular tannins, but it finishes with finesse and beauty. Wow.¿'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Best after 2015. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2009
If the fruit holds, and this wine does not dry out, it will merit an outstanding score. However, readers need to be cautioned that this is an austere, frightfully tannic Lafleur that is somewhat atypical for this property. The wine is loaded as well as concentrated (dusty black cherry fruit dominates), but from both barrel and bottle it has consistently revealed a hard, astringent edge. It comes across more like a Medoc than a right bank offering. If the fruit holds up, it could turn out spectacular, but the ragged tannin and leathery, dusty components are worrisome. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035? Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 134
