Parker (95)

The stunning 2012 La Fleur Petrus clearly merits its striking moniker. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, it offers a dense purple color along with a big, sweet kiss of mulberry jam intermixed with black cherries, raspberries and even blacker fruits as well as a subtle touch of oak. The wine is full, rich, concentrated and moderately tannic. It is nearly as good as the 2010 and 2009. However, some structural tannins suggest 4-5 years of bottle age will be warranted, and the wine is capable of lasting a quarter of a century.

Winespectator / James Suckling (95)

Score: 93-96
Showing mouthwatering purity from the start, this is remarkably floral today, with bergamot, orange blossom and cherry notes out front, pushed by a hint of violet, then backed by a juicy core filled with linzer torte and cassis. A flicker of savory threads the finish, adding further range and distinction. Sneaks up on you, starting slowly but expanding dramatically in the glass. A full stride ahead of the 2011. This is the first vintage that has the new 2-plus hectare parcel recently purchased from Château Guillot and located next to Le Pin. It shows.
