Lafleur 2015 Released: A “Standout” Of The Vintage

May 12, 2016

Lafleur 2015 has been released and is being offered by merchants at $6520 per 12×750.

The wine has received an array of high scores from critics. James Suckling awarded it a straight 100 points and reflected on its perfection: “It’s hard to describe perfection. It’s not just power and depth. It’s something mystical and ethereal.” Neal Martin, who scored it 97-99, predicted that “it will be one of the standout wines of the vintage”.

Lafleur’s wines from the ‘great’ 2005, 2009 and 2010 vintages command a high premium on those from other years. At $6,000, the 2015 sits above the majority of back vintages but represents a significant discount on the ‘greats’: it is priced 55% below 2005. Buyers looking for the best of Lafleur might indeed find relative value here.
