Tasting Notes Lafleur 1995

96

Tasted from an ex-chateau bottle at the Lafleur vertical dinner at Attersee in Austria. The Lafleur 1995 is turning into a stellar Pomerol after a cautious first few years. As it begins to open up, it has a sublime bouquet that is less introspective than in past examples, bestowing scents of dark cherries, blackberry, limestone and a hint of balsamic. As I commented before, there is something that stylistically echoes La Conseillante just down the road. The palate is full-bodied with dense, obdurate tannins that form its chassis that will ensure that it ages over many years. It is still a little tight, still holding something back whilst the oyster shell tinged finish is imbued with a beguiling sense of symmetry. Superb. Tasted June 2012.

This is an awesome Lafleur, but it is also an amazingly backward, tannic monster that will need more cellaring than any Medoc in this vintage. The wine boasts an opaque black/purple color, as well as a closed but promising nose that represents the essence of blackberry, raspberry, and cherry fruit. Intertwined with those aromas is the tell-tale mineral terroir of Lafleur, full body, blistering dry, astringent tannin, and a layered, weighty feel on the palate. This is the kind of young claret that I couldn't wait to rush out and buy two decades ago, but now I have to be content to admire it and wish I were twenty years younger. It is formidable, prodigious, and oh, so promising, but I cannot see it being ready to drink before the end of the second decade of the next century! Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050.
