The 2001 Lafleur has long been one of my favourite vintages and it clearly excels in this year. It has a wonderful bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, black truffle, forest floor and autumn leaf aromas, but it is the energy and tension that really elevate the 2001 above its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannin, beautifully balanced with a gentle grip in the mouth. There is a vein of spiciness that runs throughout, a subtle marine influence that lends complexity to the fresh finish that is full of tension and energy. This is only just beginning to show what it can do. Tasted at the Christies? Lafleur masterclass in London.
