Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

The 1999 Lafleur flies under the radar between the feted 1998 and 2000 vintages. However, it should not be under-estimated. It has a lucid deep color. The bouquet is not dissimilar to the previous bottle tasted in 2012, blessed with pure blackberry and briary scents, hints of gravel that render it not a million miles away from a Left Bank. The palate is very well balanced and seems silkier than ever. Whilst it does not possess the mineral core of the 1998, it has a disarmingly pure and graceful finish. Whilst not a Lafleur of immense length or grandeur it is approachable and beautifully crafted. Tasted at the “International Wine & Business” Lafleur dinner at Ten Trinity, London.

Robert Parker – 93

This 1999 Pomerol seems to be entering a real sweet spot. Here it offers a sublime cocktail of aromas ” blackberry, briary, hedgerow and minerals, though it does not have the vigour of a top vintage. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannins and it is certainly more approachable than other vintages. I love the symmetry here, the nonchalance and grace. One of the best wines of the vintage. Tasted November 2012. [Neal Martin, 01/11/2012]

JancisRobinson.com – 18

Deep crimson. Lightly fragrant. Lilies and green vegetation but enormous concentration, and a hint of dark chocolate. Vibrant and playful on the finish. Serious wine!!! You can really see the difference between this and some of the more oenologist-constructed wines in this line up. [25/06/2009]

Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020
