Chateau La Fleur Petrus 2001
|Brand||Chateau La Fleur Petrus|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
This saturated deep purple-colored 2001 exhibits terrific fruit on the attack (currants, sweet cherries, dried herbs, and grilled nuts), medium body, fine density, velvety tannin, and a plump, concentrated personality. The tannin is well-integrated in this precocious, forward 2001. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
Very pretty licorice and spice character on the nose. Full-bodied, with very well?integrated tannins and a long, long finish. This is slightly cooler and racier than the 2000, but I love them both.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
