Critic Notes

Score: 95-/100James SucklingDrinking Window: Very pretty aromas of rose petal, lavender, black cherry and hot stone. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and enduring finish. A beautiful red for the vintage. Very Lafleur. Feb 2016, www.jamessuckling.com

Score: 18-/20Richard Hemming MWDrinking Window: 2018-2028

The 2013 Lafleur was one of my favorite wines from barrel because, as Baptiste Guinaudeau remarked when I visited the property, he did not try to make a Pomerol beyond what it could be. The nose might not possess the complexity of the best vintages of Lafleur, but it is clearly delineated and fresh, with blackberry and raspberry fruit, a subtle granitic scent tucked underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin, as is often the case for Lafleur, with crunchy red berry fruit and a stony, almost reserved but fresh finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. This is an excellent wine considering the growing season. Oct 2016, www.robertparker.com

Following the tasting it was no surprise to see the spectacular scores ...

As well as offering a pleasing reduction in price versus their last two vintages, this welcome surprise set the tone for potentially one of the most exciting En Primeur campaigns ever. Last week our first releases ...

Pomerol: Small but Beautiful
Bordeaux: the foundation of any cellar.  The greatest, and most famous wine producing region in the world.  The heart of fine wine production.  These are all arguable.  And, conveniently, there is rather a lot of it.  The average left bank chateau will have an annual production of up to 20,000 cases per year, and barrel cellars the size of football ...

Pomerol: A Tale of Two Vintages
We report from a visit by Pomerol Séduction, an organisation promoting eight top wines from the iconic Right Bank appellation in Bordeaux. On the tasting table were Bordeaux 2012s and 2015s - two very different vintages that both have stories to tell. As the scramble for this year’s En Primeur offerings from Bordeaux reached its climax last week, the FINE+RARE Team saw ...

A Pomerol Evening with Neal Martin
On Wednesday night we were privileged to have the company of Neal Martin at a small dinner in the private room of the brilliant Chez Bruce. The theme was, of course, Pomerol and Neal’s recently published book on the region. Wine and food first. The aim of the wine selection was to be eclectic rather than simply aiming for the ...
