97(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013

Bright ruby.  Captivating nose combines blackcurrant, blackberry syrup, vanilla, minerals, dried rose, violet and white pepper; the cabernet franc element (roughly 54% of the blend) really comes through.  Sweet and pliant on entry, then more austere in the middle, with penetrating but youthfully reticent flavors of dark berries, minerals, coffee reduction, cocoa and tobacco leaf.  With its rather silky texture, good breadth and restrained sweetness, this 2010 offers considerable early appeal but has the structure to last several decades.  Finishes subtle and gripping, with a rising, palate-dusting finish featuring notes of smoke, herbs and flowers.  This stellar wine will go down in memory not just as one of the greatest Lafleurs in memory, but of all Bordeaux.  For me, it's also the wine of the vintage right now.
