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.
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. 96-97
The 2019 La Fleur-Pétrus dares to outshine Trotanoy this year, wafting from the glass with aromas of rich berry fruit, plum preserve, dark chocolate, cigar box and spices. Full-bodied, rich and enveloping, it's broad and layered, with beautifully polished tannins, a ripe core of fruit and a seamless, enveloping profile. This is an elegantly muscular, generous Pomerol whose sumptuous personality reflects the warm, dry vintage.
