Wine Advocate

93 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 46% Merlot and 54% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Pensées de Lafleur bursts with plum preserves and redcurrant jelly scents, giving way to nuances of red roses, dusty soil, bouquet garni and tapenade with a waft of black truffles. The medium to full-bodied palate is oh-so-elegant, featuring very soft tannins and beautifully knit acidity to support the generous black and red fruits, finishing long and earthy. Give it a good 3 years to spread its wings and drink it over the next 15 years or more." 03/21

Neil Martin

94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2018 Les Pensées de Lafleur is a different kettle of fish compared to the Grand Vin. In fact, it should be treated as a separate Pomerol cuvée, since even though it comes from a tongue of more clayey soil within Lafleur, the resulting wine is much more sensual and richer in style. Plush red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit feature on the nose, rose petals scents forming after a couple of hours’ opening. The palate is medium-bodied, soft in texture and approachable, displaying plenty of rondeur, with fine mineralité toward the finish and still just the faint acrid tang of a strong espresso on the aftertaste. I love this and it would not surprise me if blind, I ended up scoring it higher than the Grand Vin for the first few years." 03/21

Antonio Galloni

93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 Les Pensées de Lafleur is marked by strong Cabernet Franc accents in its flavor profile and structural feel. Dried rose petal, sage, mint, red cherry and orange zest all open, but only with great reluctance. Les Pensées is tightly wound now, after bottling, and needs time to be at its finest. Even so, it is pretty special today." 03/21
