Chateau La Fleur Petrus 1998
|Brand||Chateau La Fleur Petrus|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
The finest La Fleur-Petrus I have tasted, this dense ruby/purple-colored wine exhibits aromas and flavors of Chinese black tea, raspberries, kirsch liqueur, and flowers. Elegant, yet crammed with concentrated fruit, it is symmetrical, harmonious and long, with tremendous persistence on the palate. While not a blockbuster/heavyweight, it is a wine of finesse and richness that admirably balances power with elegance. A great success!
Winespectator / James Suckling (93)
Aromas of mushrooms and olives, turning to crushed blackberries. Full-bodied, with soft, round tannins and sweet ripe fruit. Long and flavorful.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
