Château Lafleur 1982

Pomerol

u. 10bn, 2vts, 1 label very slightly nicked at bottom, 1 very slightly scuffed at corner otherwise excellent appearance, 1 capsule slightly damaged at collar

Unbelievably rich, plummy nose. Drenched damsons. Glorious meaty taste. Very young and "irony". Coffee bean finish. Faultless. Then tasted from magnum, classic nose showing the Cabernet Franc that, of course, is not in Petrus. Great finesse and elegance. So meaty and so beautifully silky, with lots of liquorice. Fans out with extraordinary flavour. Firmer than Petrus when I saw them together. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
