Chateau La Fleur Petrus 2003
|Brand||Chateau La Fleur Petrus|
An open-knit Pomerol, the 2003 exhibits a medium ruby color, an opulent, sweet cherry-scented nose, low acid, plump, round flavors, a fragile constitution, but an incremental richness that builds on the palate. A light effort for the vintage, it comes across like a round, juicy Pinot Noir because of its sweetness of fruit and expansiveness. Drink it over the next 10-12 years, although it may last even longer as its balance is impressive.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
Aromas of plums with flowers and berries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with round, velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Juicy wine. Sweet fruit. Best after 2009. 2,915 cases made. â€“JS
