Robert Parker 87-88
Owned by the proprietor of Chateau Lafleur (the Guinaudeau family), this blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc was harvested between September 24 and October 12. It is a sexy, elegant, fruity effort with lots of raspberry and cherry notes, medium body and sweet tannin. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019
