Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate

(11/2002) Along with Haut Brion, this is one of the two candidates for the wine of the vintage. The wine is approaching full maturity, yet still seems so atypical for a 1979, a phenomenally concentrated, thick, massively endowed wine with huge levels of extract, tannin, and power. The wine still has some dusty tannins and a huge nose of sweet black truffles intermixed with blackberries, plums, figs, and minerals. Very powerful, as well as enormously endowed, this is a remarkable effort in this vintage. I am still not sure off if the tannins will ever resolve themselves, but this wine, which is just approaching full maturity, should go on for at least another 25 or more years.

Château informations
Lafleur
Chateau Lafleur: This small vineyard of 4.5 hectares, located on the Pomerol appellation, the wine of Château Lafleur is certainly one of the rarest wines and the most sought. Made from merlot and cabernet franc (50% and 50%), the wines of Chateau Lafleur are of a quality out-of-common. All these elements and limited production (averaging 12,000 bottles, one of the smallest with Le Pin Pomerol) explain the high price of Château Lafleur.
