1989 La Fleur Petrus

Average critic rating : 91.5 points



In 1989, 50% of the grapes were cut off to reduce the crop size and to augment the wine's intensity. The results may be the finest La Fleur-Petrus since the 1950 and 1947. Dark opaque ruby, with a tight yet expressive bouquet of exotic spices, mocha, and deep, super-ripe black-cherry fruit, this medium-bodied wine has an inner core of depth and length. Its admirable intensity of flavor is backed by a formidable degree of alcohol and tannin. Anticipated maturity: 1996- 2009. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 85



A juicy, succulent '89 offering lots of chocolate, black olive and plum character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Slightly one-dimensional but a joy to taste.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2005.James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1999
