Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Lafleur has a beautifully composed bouquet with scents of black cherry, truffle, iron piping and a touch of mint. It is very well defined, nicely focused and full of breeding. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, a superb seam of acidity, good body and presence in the mouth. I adore the ferrous aspect of this Lafleur married with the sense of energy conveyed towards the finish—an off-vintage Pomerol that seems to be flourishing with bottle age. Superb. Tasted February 2017.

"(57% merlot and 43% cabernet franc) Good deep ruby-red. Complex nose melds black plum, musky chocolate, licorice, menthol and fresh herbs. Sweet, dense, ripe and silky, with lovely life and palate coverage. Pure and harmonious from the outset, with a firm architecture for the year. Finishes a bit strict but not hard, with a smoky nuance and lovely length. Pomerol does not get much better than this in 2007. The alcohol here will be in the low 13s"
