2015 La Fleur-Pétrus, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1261905 99-100 points James Suckling

 The power and depth of fruit here is extraordinary with incredible phenolic texture and caressing mouthfeel. Full and enticing. It’s a wine that shows power with finesse. Such contrast and greatness.  (4/2015)

95-98 points Wine Spectator

 Gorgeously integrated already, with loads of blackberry and boysenberry fruit infused with black tea and dark wood spice accents, carried by charcoal and warm earth notes. The elements sail through a large-scale finish that has remarkable cut for a wine of this size. (Web-2016) (JM)

94-97 points Vinous

 The 2015 La Fleur-Pétrus exudes richness and concentration. Iron, savory herbs, white pepper and mint open up first, followed by intense, pungent tannins that extend the mid-palate into the finish and give the wine its shape. Unctuous and rich, but with good aromatic intensity and plenty of structure, the 2015 is likely to require quite a few years to fully come together. The blend is 92% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot. (AG)  (4/2016)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 La Fleur Petrus is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, having absorbed Château Guillot back in 2012. It has a clean and precise bouquet with ebullient red cherry, blackcurrant and cold stone aromas that are very succinct. There is nothing showy here, but it is very refined and graceful. The palate is very well balanced with succulent ripe tannin, clean and precise, lightly spiced red fruit with outstanding focus and tension on the finish. This La Fleur Petrus has an effortless cool about it. I am sure it will be wondrous once in bottle. (NM)  (4/2016)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is an impressive wine with its dark tannins and concentrated fruits. It shows the power of the vintage, with generous red fruits, dark tannins and dense texture. (RV)  (4/2016)

93 points Decanter

 Now a 18.7ha estate. Elegant, fragrant nose. Round and full on the palate with a fine, smooth texture and abundant, ripe tannins. Lovely length and freshness on the finish. Combines elegance and power. (JL)  (4/2016)

A wonderful wine that will compare favorably to their 2009 and 2010 in the years to come. 92% Merlot here and blackberry fruits abound. So Sweet and elegant. I much prefer this to Trotanoy in 2015. Tremendous depth of flavor-perfect balance for the cellar. Long and lush. Not a big production and well worth a buy on futures.
Drink from 2019 to 2039

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
