Ruby-red color. Sappy, crystallized black raspberry, blueberry, minerals and camphor on the rather cool nose. Brutally backward and folded in on itself; actually rather creamy in the middle but astringent around the edges. A tough wine in need of a decade or more of aging. Finishes quite tannic, with a note of leafy cabernet franc. Showed more sweetness and texture after 24 hours in the open bottle. A throwback style of Pomerol, yet it does not appear to offer the flamboyant ripeness and rusticity of the best pre-1990 vintages of Lafleur.

MagnumDark red with maturing rim. Relatively light nose. Denser, fuller and rounder and richer than the 1996 – much more impressive. Big, rich, Lafleur Pomerol impact. Velvety. Extremely long. Strokes the palate. Very long. Lovely already. Real zest as well as richness. A great vintage in the canon of 1990s vintages. SG: 1995 has the most typical minerality of Lafleur.

the ?95 suffered a similar fate, though most of the table found it to be a touch more blatant in its respective taint. Time to break out the violin?you guys know you want to throw a screw-cap down on Lafleur
