SKU #1357389 93 points James Suckling

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Lafleur-Gazin is plump, juicy and wonderfully inviting in 2017. Cedar, pipe tobacco, cinnamon and dried flowers add lovely top notes to the bright, red-toned fruit in this mid-weight, gracious Pomerol. Best of all, the 2017 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. This is a very pretty, gracious wine. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe and enticing, with velvety plum sauce and blackberry puree flavors, lined with smoldering black tea, ganache and sweet tobacco notes. Good brambly energy pushes the finish. Has some grip to shed, so cellar in the near term. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Nose a little subdued here but the flavours are pure and well defined on the palate, with softly-spun pepper and rosemary notes. Savoury feel overall, but one that has poise and balance and will be ready to drink within a few years. Lightly structured but well-put together and with extraction that was extremely carefully handed. Enjoyable, and taken on weight during ageing. (JA) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lafleur-Gazin, 100% Merlot, displays delicate aromas of crushed cherries, Black Forest cake and baked plums with suggestions of star anise, fenugreek, unsmoked cigars and forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is chock-full of vibrant red and black berry layers, framed by nice, ripe, rounded tannins and bold freshness, finishing with a spicy kick. (LPB) 91+ Inner quote mark (3/2020)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This well-structured wine has firm tannins and rich black fruit in equal proportions. The texture brings in acidity that adds to the ripe fruitiness, pointing to a balanced wine as it ages. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2020)
