2016 Lafleur-Gazin, Pomerol

SKU #1440610 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A beautifully plush and attractively rich Pomerol with aromas of red cherries and plums, framed in cedar and cocoa, as well as notes of earth and undergrowth. The plush palate is undeniably silky yet long and powerfully regal. Terrific balance here. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Lafleur-Gazin is made up of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Medium garnet-purple colored, it simply sings of red roses, cherry cordial, blackberry pie and warm blueberries with suggestions of cinnamon toast and wood smoke. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with tons of juicy red and blue berry flavors, supported by a wonderfully soft, velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The intensity of this wine, hand in hand with its silkiness, is remarkable. Dense but extremely silky tannins, and tight but juicy berry fruits. 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc from 8.75ha on gravel, clay and silt soils. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Almost pure Merlot, this dense wine is rich and packed with black fruits. Its concentration and density are massive, with tannins that are almost velvet in character. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich cherry compote and plum preserve flavors define this wine, while licorice snap, singed alder and tobacco notes fill in the background. Lingering wood spice accents run through the finish, while the fruit hangs on. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Lafleur-Gazin has improved since its rather middling showing out of barrel. It offers ripe red cherry, kirsch and violets on the nose, the floral element becoming more intense with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, supple tannin, and denser compared to recent vintages, displaying spicebox and a touch of white pepper toward the finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark crimson. Meaty and substantial on the nose. Very dry – as opposed to sweet. Serious, intellectual Pomerol! A wine to unfurl over many years. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2017)
