Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 94
"The 2018 La Fleur-Pétrus has a wonderful bouquet that exceeds my expectations, featuring black-truffle-infused black fruit and those juniper berries I noticed out of barrel, all beautifully defined and seeming to blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin's. There is a slightly granular texture on the entry, matched with a fine bead of acidity. Very harmonious. A pinch of salted licorice appears toward the finish, which might lag behind both Trotanoy and Hosanna in terms of complexity, but delivers impressive persistence." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 97
"A blend of 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2018 la Fleur-Petrus has a medium garnet-purple color and a slightly closed-down nose to begin, soon unfurling to reveal earthy notions of black truffles, mossy tree bark and damp soil, over a core of plum preserves, wild blueberries and redcurrants, plus a fragrant waft of menthol lilacs. The medium to full-bodied palate has the most gorgeous, velvety texture with well-knit freshness giving lift to the densely packed black fruit and earthy layers, finishing with a beguiling perfume. Stunning. Give it a good 3-4 years in bottle and drink it over the next 30 years or more." -Robert Parker

Decanter

"There is ton to enjoy here. It's gorgeous, ripped and muscular, with beautifully sculpted fruits as it opens. Some over-concentration on the finish perhaps, with slight fig and prune notes against the juicier damson and black cherry. Still, this is a gorgeous wine that will age well."

Wine Spectator

WS 94
"This offers a dark hued mix of plum, blackberry and black currant fruit that rolls through, unwinding to show anise, warm stone and tobacco notes as it does. Savory- and dark earth–tinged finish echoes lengthily. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 96
"Situated on some of the finest terroir in Pomerol, this estate has produced a powerful while impressively subtle wine. Black fruits, rich tannins and strength come together in a wine that is much more than its elements. Aging will bring out the wine’s character."
