I like the balance and finesse to this young Lafleur Petrus. So refined and beautiful. Better in 2017.

This wine has a character similar to its cross-street neighbor, Petrus, displaying sweet mulberry and intense black fruit characteristics, with a hint of vanillin and loads of black cherry jam. Full-bodied, extravagantly luscious, with a skyscraper-like mid-palate and phenomenal length of close to 50 seconds, the wine has plenty of tannin, but the voluptuous fruit, power and overall glycerin and intensity tend to conceal much of it. Elegant but compellingly rich and authoritative, the 2010 is a truly magnificent wine for this estate, which has one of the finest terroirs in all of Pomerol. Forget it for 5-7 years and drink it over the following 30-35. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This has a dense, almost loamy feel at the core, with smoldering bay and ganache notes leading to layers of fig preserves, blackberry coulis and steeped black currant fruit. The terrific, charcoal-coated grip drives the finish with authority. This seems poised to expand significantly in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2035. – JM

Deep garnet in colour the La Fleur-Petrus has a ripe opulent bouquet with blackberry dark cherries crushed violet and just a hint of blueberry pie. Good delineation and mineralité here. The palate is full-bodied powerful a little spicy on the entry and energetic in the mouth. Very good weight with touches of truffle and a dash of white pepper sprinkled over the dense black fruits a touch of tar on the tannic finish. There is a lot of bravura on this La Fleur-Petrus though it needs to nurture a little more substance to pull it off. Great potential though.

Very fresh, highly scented nose combines cherry, raspberry, flowers, crushed stone, tobacco and underbrush; this could only be Pomerol. Fat, ripe and extremely deep but with uncanny precision and peppery lift to its vibrant flavors of cherry, raspberry, black tea and stony minerality. A Pomerol of great energy and refinement, finishing with firm tannic spine, terrific peppery lift and outstanding mineral reserve. Based on this wine's tightly coiled quality and uncanny depth, I would expect it to merit an even higher score a decade from now, when it will probably also reveal more flesh and sweetness. 95+

A majestic wine, grand in every sense. It has weight, the firmest of tannins and an immense sense of structure. This neighbor of Château Pétrus is firmly dense, showing both the fruits and the tannins in balance. Give... A majestic wine, grand in every sense. It has weight, the firmest of tannins and an immense sense of structure. This neighbor of Château Pétrus is firmly dense, showing both the fruits and the tannins in balance. Give this wine at least 10 years in the cellar.

Spicy and very rich. Smooth and easy. Cinnamon and ripe fruit. One of the more precocious wines although there is lots of tannin underneath too. 17.5/20

The ripeness of the vintage comes through here with classically pure expressions of grilled meats and crème de cassis on the nose. A touch of freshness and elegance emerge on the palate profile as the wine begins to unwind where the medium-weighted fruit picks up richness. More fruit concentration appears in the backpalate with a burst of pure thick fruit and the flavors end with fine dry roasted tannins. Great potential in the cellar this needs 15 years to be at its best.
