Part of Best Pomerol 2019 wines tasted en primeur
"Beautiful aromatics, this sets itself apart from the first nose. The texture is velvety, with a sense of energy and precision that showcases the barest flicks of graceful minerality as it heads through the palate. Seriously enjoyable wine, one to note down in the vintage. It's concentrated, with barreled-down brambled fruit, relatively low acidity compared to the 2018, but it's sumptuous. A yield of 28hl/ha. Drinking Window 2027 - 2045."
THE WINE ADVOCATE 94-96
"Very deep purple-black in color, the 2019 la Fleur-Petrus soars out of the glass with vibrant notes of freshly crushed black cherries, warm plums and kirsch with underlying suggestions of wild sage, damp soil, charcoal and unsmoked cigars plus just a hint of Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and bags of freshness supporting the muscular black fruits, finishing long and savory."
CORNEY & BARROW 17-17.5 points
"Some of the most beautiful deep bedded gravel soil on an iron rich sub-soil form the heart of this legendary property, deployed to super effect in 2019. Intense ruby colour. This is stylishly suave and elegant on the nose with layered, minty red fruits, really vinous. The palate is both fresh and sensual, amply structured but with bright berry fruit and an almost chocolate richness but with a lovely freshness on the finish. Recommended drinking from 2026 - 2031+."
