93 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 PensÃ©es de Lafleur opens with bold, tantalizing notes of crushed black cherries, wild blueberries and plum preserves with hints of kirsch, violets, dark chocolate and licorice with a waft of forest floor. Medium-bodied, the palate is amazingly elegant for the intensity of fruit with beautifully ripe, finely grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long and layered." 11/18
"90-93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: ""A gorgeous second wine, the 2016 PensÃ©es de Lafleur will give readers a very good idea of what the vintage is all about at Lafleur. Layered and pliant, with lovely aromatic brightness that plays off the fruit, the 2016 is incredibly delicious today. In 2016, the PensÃ©es is a wine of pure and total pleasure."" 4/17"
97 Points, James Suckling: "The complexity on the nose is so mesmerizing with subtle smoke, dried meat and plums. Full-bodied with so well integrated and ultra-fine tannins, the wine shows composure and greatness. it goes on for minutes. Harmony. Grace. Wonderful wine. Second wine of Lafleur. Better in 2023." 2/19
