Lot #34. Lafleur 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 98 NM.
"The nose is backward, similar to the ’82 in some ways and demands 20 minutes for its reveille in glass. It is worth waiting for: blackberries, wild hedgerow, a faint hint of brine and old roses with stupendous delineation, the palate is atypical for a 1990 in that it is still relatively austere, muscular, more stoic than the 1989. It has unerring harmony with a very dense, grippy finish and although it is not as expressive as the Lafleur 1989 at the moment, this will be wonderful wine to behold . . ." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Dec 1999
Notes: Base neck, lightly scuffed capsule, heavily damp stained, glue stained, scuffed and lightly bin soiled label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,100
