2013 Les Pensées de Lafleur, Pomerol

“It has a bright bouquet with dark plum, raspberry and a touch of iodine, certainly a Merlot-driven nose with just a hint of truffle in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a strictness that is more Cabernet Franc in style and seems more structured than previous vintages. There is fine precision, more tightly wound than previous vintages but I think it will be longer lived. This is worth checking out. Serious.” 90-92 points, Neal Martin’s Wine Journal, eRobertParker.com
