$56.99

La Chapelle is a "climat" within Les Breterins and Reugne, on the steep slope of la Montagne de Bourdon, facing south/southeast. The vines are well-placed in mid-slope and are mostly sixty years-old, giving the most "generous" of the three Lafouge premier crus. The soils here are partially "marnes blanches" which seems to contribute to the more supple and elegant style of wines from this site. "A wonderfully elegant and expressive nose combines notes of dark currant, poached plum, spice and a floral top note. The super-sleek and even more refined middleweight flavors also flash evident minerality on the balanced and powerful but not rustic finale. This should also be capable of repaying a decade plus of keeping though in this case, it's going to need on the order of 7 to 8 years to round into form. In a word, excellent." Burghound #94
