Chateau La Fleur Petrus 2006
|Brand||Chateau La Fleur Petrus|
From barrel, I had much higher hopes for this wine as a potential candidate for the wine of the vintage. That said, it is still an outstanding effort, but it has nowhere near the prodigious depth and intensity that I thought. With sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of truffle, kirsch, and even blacker black currants and licorice, the wine displays pure, nicely textured, medium-bodied flavors in a sensual style, but nowhere near the depth, length, and potential longevity I had expected.

Blackberry, spice¿such as cinnamon¿and mineral aromas lead to a full body, with tobacco, chocolate and cedar character. There's lots of milk chocolate and fruit. Very pretty.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
