The Lafouge Climat du Val is normally the least forward of the three premier crus, and needs a bit more aging to reach it's peak. The 2012 shows lovely aromas of black raspberry, red currant, violet and earth. The palate is light but intense with firm acidity and dense, very earthy berry fruits. More mineral then fruit on the palate and with a very long finish of ripe berry and saline minerals. 2012 is a vintage of pure fruit, firm acidity and excellent terroir expression and the Climat du Val is a great example - drink now in it's lovely if austere youth, cellar for five years and drink happily until 2030.
