Les Pensees de Lafleur - Chateau Lafleur

9 years

The 2008 Les Pensees de Lafleur is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. It is elegant, although not quite as rich and intense as the 2010, but loads of licorice, red and black fruits, earth and spice make for a medium-bodied, stylish wine to drink over the next 10-15 years. *** The second wine, the 2008 Les Pensees de Lafleur, a blend of 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Franc, is a richly fruity, seductive, sensual effort that should be drinkable young, and last for 10-15 years.. * The tiny Lafleur vineyard, which was harvested between October 8-14, produced a wine with an atypically high percentage of Cabernet Franc. Proprietor Guinadeau stated that the Cabernet Franc was among the finest he had ever harvested.
