Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, April 1996, Score: 94-96

The 1995 Lafleur is a spectacular effort. The color is nearly opaque black/blue/purple. The huge nose of sweet cassis, raspberry fruit is intermingled with scents of smoke and minerals. Thick, mind-bogglingly extracted flavors exhibiting a 1990/1982-like ripeness are followed by massive quantities of fruit, glycerin, body, and tannin. Once again, this is a spectacularly pure, well-balanced wine that should age effortlessly for 30+ years. A great Lafleur, it follows in the footsteps of such fabulous vintages as 1982, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, and 1994. Only 1000+ cases of wine are produced at this micro-estate (which allocates about one-third of its production to its second wine, Les Pensees de Lafleur). Further complicating this wine's availability is the fact that Lafeur's 1995 yields were extremely low (under 40 hectoliters per hectare). Latching onto a bottle or two of this treasure will be agonizingly difficult.All of the wines in this segment were tasted between March 19 and March 28 in Bordeaux. Most of the important wines from both the 1994 and 1995 vintages were tasted three separate times during my ten-day stay in Bordeaux. Drink: 1996-2026.

Region

Pomerol, Red Bordeaux

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
