Critic Notes

The 2010 Pensees de Lafleur has a truly gorgeous bouquet of violets, spices, plums and blackberries, followed on the palate by an array of spices with very precise flavour definition and amazing freshness and depth. With caressing tannins and flavours that dance on the palate, this is a truly successful Pensees de Lafleur- the best I have tasted in the past ten years! 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc.

Score: 92-94/100Jeannie Cho Lee MW

Pensees de Lafleur is produced from 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc. Pensees de Lafleur comes from a selection of terroir, not young vines. Aside from a shorter maceration time, the wine is produced with the same care that is received by Lafleur. The wine shows truffle, black cherry liqueur and minerality that couples with soft textures ending with black cherries 90-92 Pts Jeff Leve winecellarinsider.com

Score: 90-92/100Jeff Leve

The 2010 Les Pensees de Lafleur is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The wine is fresh and lively, with loads of strawberry and black cherry fruit, hints of underbrush and crushed rock, and good length. The final blend seems to be different from what I tasted in early 2011. Drink it over the next 15 years. Feb 2013, www.robertparker.com

2018 En Primeur Release of Pomerol's Chateau Belle-Brise
The 2018 Bordeaux En Primeur campaign reached new heights this week with the surprise release of one of Saint-Emilion’s top estates - Chateau Angelus. 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 ...
