A wine of superb concentration and dazzling intensity, the impressive 2000 Lafleur-Petrus is tasting even better out of bottle than it did from cask. A deep saturated purple-colored, full-bodied, powerful example that is clearly in a class with the 1998, it may be the finest Lafleur-Petrus made in the last 50 years. The 2000 exhibits plenty of cocoa, black cherry, plum, and currant fruit, a large framework, and impressive concentration as well as power. I always thought this was an improved "bigger" version of the 1975, and I have no reason to think otherwise based on its performance from bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.

Sweet, lush and deep, with liqueur-like red fruits complicated by notes of tobacco leaf and fresh herbs. Very silky, voluminous Pomerol with real sweetness and inner-mouth perfume. A thoroughly seductive vintage for this chateau.

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2003
Very silky young red. Bright aromas of pressed flowers and blueberries. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Subtle red. Solid. Needs time. Best after 2010. 3,600 cases made. -JS
