Chateau La Fleur Petrus 2004
|Brand||Chateau La Fleur Petrus|
Performing better from bottle than it did from barrel, this is a classic, elegant La Fleur-Petrus (in contrast to the blockbuster 2006) offering hints of kirsch liqueur, soy, and resiny pine forest notes. Elegant, medium-bodied, fresh, and pure, it is best drunk over the next 14-15 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
Very attractive chocolate, black olive, berries and even tobacco on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins, a refined texture and a long, caressing finish. All here.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
