  • The wine has been released internationally for £1,950 (12×75).
  • A “milestone” for the property according to Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW.
  • Back vintages such as the 2019, 2016, 2015 and 2012 look fair value.

La Fleur-Pétrus 2020 has been released En Primeur and is being offered by the international trade for £1,950 per case. This is 17% more than the current Market Price of the 2019.

Several back vintages with the same Benchmark Critic score are available for less. See more Fair Value analysis below.

Critical Opinion

The Vinous team of Antonio Galloni and Neal Martin both rated the wine 94-96. “La Fleur-Pétrus is, above all else, a wine of understatement and elegance. The 2020 is especially fine,” wrote Galloni.

Martin added that it was a “serious” wine that would require some cellaring but “will be worth waiting for”.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW scored it 95-97 and James Suckling awarded 99-100 points, saying it was a “milestone” for the property.

Fair Value

The Pomerol property has the strongest correlation with Wine Advocate scores. The 2019 with the same score looks better value by comparison, as do the 2015 and 2012 vintages with their higher score.

Considering Benchmark Critic scores reinforces the value to be found in these vintages.  Looking at the lead chart at the top of the page, back vintages including the 2019, 2016 and 2015 look Fair Value. All carry a score of 95-points from Neal Martin but are available for less.

Likewise, the 2012, which has the highest Benchmark Critic rating of 96-points, is available at a 32% discount (£1,470 per case) at present.
