Chateau La Fleur Petrus 1999
|Brand||Chateau La Fleur Petrus|
This 1999 is performing well, with more power and depth after bottling than before. It exhibits a dense ruby color as well as a sweet nose of pure black cherry jam intermixed with hints of raspberry, new wood, and earth. It is surprisingly powerful for a 1999, with admirable ripeness, sweet tannin, and low acidity. Two to three years of cellaring is warranted.
Winespectator / James Suckling (88)
Fresh and bright aromas of crushed berries and minerals. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh, fruity aftertaste.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
