    Critical Acclaim:

    Still quite primal, with fleshy plum skin, warm raspberry confiture and dark roasted woodspice notes still wrestling a bit with each other. A bit thick on the finish as this seems to have aimed for extraction; it will need to develop some finesse during the élevage for balance.
    Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points

    Bright ruby-red. Perfumed violet and strawberry aromas are complicated by chocolate and herbs. The bright red berry and cherry flavors show lovely depth and purity, with chocolate and vanilla notes adding another dimension. Very good balance and a fresh, long, smooth finish make this vintage of Lafleur-Gazin one of the best in recent memory.

    International Wine Cellar

    There is some warmth here, with the tannins providing a firm base for the crisp fruit. This wine shows some richness as well as intense acidity.
