2019 La Fleur-Pétrus, Pomerol 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1485195 97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Beautiful aromatics, this sets itself apart from the first nose. The texture is velvety, with a sense of energy and precision that showcases the barest flicks of graceful minerality as it heads through the palate. Seriously enjoyable wine, one to note down in the vintage. It's concentrated, with barreled-down brambled fruit, relatively low acidity compared to the 2018, but it's sumptuous. A yield of 28hl/ha.

96-97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a genuine, old-school Pomerol with blueberries, wet earth and black tea leaf. It’s full-bodied, yet balanced and beautiful. Traditional and so attractive with a modern tone. Inner quote mark (6/2020)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 95–97. Barrel Sample. Dark, dense and full of tannins, this is a powerful wine. The concentration in this wine gives it a dry, structured character, but the richness of the blackberry fruits and streak of acidity are likely to kick in attractively as it ages.

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2019 Chateau La Fleur-Petrus is impressive, and I suspect in the same ballpark as the 2018. Lots of darker, earthy fruits, crushed rock-like minerality, and chocolate notes emerge from this dense, concentrated, backward, and slightly hard to read barrel sample. I love its depth of fruit, it’s full-bodied, has plenty of opulence as well as tannins and my money is on this coming together nicely in bottle. Patience, however, will be a virtue with this one. 94-96+ Inner quote mark (6/2020)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Very deep purple-black in color, the 2019 la Fleur-Petrus soars out of the glass with vibrant notes of freshly crushed black cherries, warm plums and kirsch with underlying suggestions of wild sage, damp soil, charcoal and unsmoked cigars plus just a hint of Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and bags of freshness supporting the muscular black fruits, finishing long and savory. (LPB) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 La Fleur-Pétrus underwent double sorting, optical and manual, after harvest between 17 September and 3 October. It is matured in 50% new oak. It has a gorgeous bouquet with expressive red and black fruit, intermixed with crushed stone, freshly shaved black truffle and a touch of blue fruit perhaps originating from the 3% Petit Verdot. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, gently grippy tannins, undercurrents of tobacco and earth towards the finish. It actually ends more cerebrally than I anticipated, quite mercurial in the glass. This will require several years in bottle, but it will surely be worth the wait. Superb!

K&L Notes

PLEASE NOTE: 2019 Bordeaux Futures are being offered without any added tariffs. If there are applicable tariffs at the time the wines are imported in 2022, we will contact you with the option to pay tariffs to have the wine delivered, or cancel the order with no penalty. 93-95 points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "The 2019 La Fleur-Pétrus is explosive and heady in the glass. A rush of wild flowers, spice, mocha and licorice gives the 2019 an exotic feel that resonate on the palate, where the wine is rich, ripe and flamboyant. With a bit of aeration, the 2019 shows its shoulders and persistence. I would be in no hurry here, there is plenty still left to come as the tannins soften. I never put stock in numbers alone, but the pH of 3.9 is higher than normal while the acidity above 3 is high. 'These are very California-style numbers,' Christian Moueix commented." (6/2020)
