2017 La Fleur-Pétrus, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1357381 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There’s a slightly smoky edge to the nose with a wealth of ripe dark and red plums, as well as violets, blueberries and wet earth. The palate is very plush and smoothly arranged with a very attractive weave of ripe, supple tannin and a long, fresh and fleshy hold on the finish. The tannins are discreet but deceptively long here. It builds. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A final blend of 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, the very deep garnet-purple colored 2017 la Fleur-Petrus has quite an earthy nose, sporting notions of black soil, mossy bark and truffles over a core of cassis, mulberries and plum preserves plus hints of espresso, anise and peppercorns. Medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and with great freshness, the sturdy frame supports generous black and blue fruits with earthy accents and fantastic length. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This fine wine from the central plateau of Pomerol has a beautifully structured character, rich in layers of tannins and black fruits. Juicy and full in weight, it has power and density and great aging potential. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93-96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fleshy and solid in feel, delivering warm plum and blackberry confiture notes inlaid with ample tobacco and licorice hints. There's a strong graphite streak through the finish, with admirable grip for the vintage. (JM, Web-2018) Inner quote mark

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A powerful, muscular wine fully representing the slightly more masculine style that the Christian Moueix stable has exhibited over the past few years. This is an estate that has been fascinating to watch develop, as it sets to establish its own identity in the post-Petrus era on this side of the family. Ambitious and well-constructed, it has clear ageing potential. There was no frost here, so they were able to benefit from an early-budding year. That kick of Petit Verdot gives a clear shot of dark, exotic spices through the finish - Christian Moueix was responsible for its addition a few years ago. An excellent La Fleur Pétrus, one of the wines of the vintage in Pomerol. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From a slightly larger vineyard covering 46 acres, the 2017 Chateau La Fleur Petrus is a gorgeous wine that stays in the classic style of the vintage yet still packs plenty of oomph and textural richness. Based on 93% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a seamless, medium to full-bodied 2017 that has fantastic cassis and black raspberry fruits, lots of floral and spice nuances, subtle oak, and ripe, present, polished tannins. It doesn't have the opulence of the 2015 and 2016, but it’s about as classy as they come. Four to five years of bottle age should put it in a sweet spot, and it will drink beautifully over the following 20 years. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 La Fleur-Pétrus has a very detailed and precise bouquet, retaining the mixture of red and black fruit that it showed out of barrel, developing that faint estuarine/brine scent that lends it personality as it opens in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, light spiced with a sprinkling of cracked black pepper and bay leaf over the persistent finish. This is an excellent Pomerol and it should give at least two decades of drinking pleasure. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
