96-98+ points Parker
A mind-boggling effort, this is the finest La Fleur Petrus I have ever tasted. Layers and layers of black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, truffles, and earth are found in this dense ruby/purple-colored elixir. With extraordinary purity, decent acidity, melted tannins, and massive fruit.
100 points Suckling
A wine that is extremely perfumed, with flowers and berries and hints of minerals. Chili. Full-bodied, with ultra-fine tannins. Muscular and powerful. Goes on and on. The finish is wonderful.
95-98 points Wine Spectator
Licorice, blackberry, coffee bean and blueberry aromas; this gets more complex with every sniff. And what a palate. It's so polished, soft and cuddly. Like curling up in a big cashmere blanket. Full-bodied, yet balanced and fresh. Lots of tannins. But all in harmony. Hidden giant here.
