It’s full-bodied with firm, tight tannins. Muscular and very formed. Energetic and precise with long, chewy layers and lots of depth, structure and polish. Superb. Needs time. Try from 2026.

Full-bodied, rich and focused, your palate is taken over by layers of silky, velvet textured fruits, all of which display incredible purity and elegance. This stunning Pomerol will age and develop for at least 3 decades. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2018&wine=Chateau%20La%20Fleur-Petrus

The medium to full-bodied palate has the most gorgeous, velvety texture with well-knit freshness giving lift to the densely packed black fruit and earthy layers, finishing with a beguiling perfume. Stunning. Give it a good 3-4 years in bottle and drink it over the next 30 years or more.

It's another inky colored beauty that boasts full-bodied richness and depth as well as thrilling notes of crème de cassis, kirsch, dried flowers, incense, and spice. With subtle background oak, flawless balance, and ultra-fine tannins, this brilliant effort will be drinkable with just short-term cellaring and keep for two decades or more.

It takes its time in the glass, with the floral aromatics only beginning to curl out after five minutes before revealing an obvious supple and rich texture alongside fruit that packs a punch, so densely knitted together it feels as though you're walking across a bed of blackcurrants. The wine shows the ambitions of this property but things are not as effortless as in the brilliant 2016 from La Fleur Petrus - my guess is that the gravel soils suffered just a touch more than usual in the heat of the summer. 3.9pH.

Savory- and dark earth–tinged finish echoes lengthily. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2023 through 2036. — J.M.
