Neal Martin (Vinous, 94-96) called the wine “superb” and praised its “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”.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Advocate) awarded the same score of 94-96, noting that “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”.
Antonio Galloni gave today’s release a range of 93-95, describing it as “explosive and heady in the glass”.
