Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, June 2003
This is a wonderful, dense wine, very concentrated, very intensely flavored. At this stage of its development, it is the opulence which is most evident, but there are already hints that it will show pure fruit alongside... This is a wonderful, dense wine, very concentrated, very intensely flavored. At this stage of its development, it is the opulence which is most evident, but there are already hints that it will show pure fruit alongside sweet tannins, and will develop complexity.

A delicious nose of black olives, brown sugar, and sliced plums. Full bodied but shy, with a dense palate and soft and silky tannins. Flavors of milk chocolate, plums, and light vanilla bean come through. This is so good... A delicious nose of black olives, brown sugar, and sliced plums. Full bodied but shy, with a dense palate and soft and silky tannins. Flavors of milk chocolate, plums, and light vanilla bean come through. This is so good now, but wait three to four years to really see it shine. Find the wine.

As in the blind tasting, a tobacco leaf hint and singed balsam elements emerge first, followed by a large core of warmed plum and blackberry. Dark in profile, with plum cake and ganache lining the finish, revealing a hint... As in the blind tasting, a tobacco leaf hint and singed balsam elements emerge first, followed by a large core of warmed plum and blackberry. Dark in profile, with plum cake and ganache lining the finish, revealing a hint of smoldering charcoal. Still needs a bit of time to stretch out.—Non-blind La Fleur-Pétrus vertical (December 2015). Best from 2018 through 2028. 3,600 cases made.

I am not convinced the 2000 La Fleur Petrus is going to eclipse the 1998, which performed even better in a recent tasting. Nevertheless, it is a terrific effort from this estate, sandwiched between the hallowed vineyards... I am not convinced the 2000 La Fleur Petrus is going to eclipse the 1998, which performed even better in a recent tasting. Nevertheless, it is a terrific effort from this estate, sandwiched between the hallowed vineyards of Petrus and Lafleur. A deep plum/ruby color is followed by aromas of mocha, kirsch liqueur, loamy soil, spice box, and licorice. It is an opulent, medium to full-bodied, big, substantial yet elegant, precise Pomerol displaying beautiful purity. It is just beginning to drink well, and should continue to age for another 10+ years. One of the two bottles I tasted was corked. 93+ - Robert Parker

Bright ruby-red. Superripe highly perfumed aromas of raspberry tobacco minerals and spices. Sweet lush and deep with liqueur-like red fruits complicated by notes of tobacco leaf and fresh herbs. Very silky voluminous... Bright ruby-red. Superripe highly perfumed aromas of raspberry tobacco minerals and spices. 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.
