The best wines of Bordeaux 2017

Lafleur

2016 release price: €420 p/b
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW: 97-100
Julia Harding MW: 18.5
James Suckling: 97-98
Neal Martin: 95-97

Although the various scores and reports have generally encouraged the suggestion that there is no one wine or appellation that is a clear ‘winner’ in 2017, reading through the various critics reports one might actually begin to draw a circle around Lafleur.

‘Just magic!” enthused Perrotti-Brown, while Martin noted that it and fellow Pomerol L’Eglise Clinet demanded patience at this stage but once Lafleur opened up it, “took your breath away, offering a brief glimpse of what one of the standouts wines of the vintage will become when it reaches its peak.”
