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. ||This 2010 is one of the most remarkable wines ever produced at this estate. The vineyard, about the same size as Petrus at 35 acres, is virtually all Merlot, but there is some Cabernet Franc in the final blend. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted at JP Moueix. 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. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

This is so creamy and lush, with layers of red, black and purple fruits. Shows muscle on the finish, but the fruit is here in spades, with terrific polish. Very, very long, with power and freshness. Tasted non-blind. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Bright dark crimson. Ripe and gamey, almost animal. Very strong impact and still embryonic but with lovely savour after the impact of the sweet fruit – but overall the tannin and acid of 2010 make this a very distinctive Fleur Pétrus. Nothing hedonistic about this. And not especially persistent. jancisrobinson.com

My 'coup de coeur' from the J-P Moueix stable this year. In a vintage of power this exudes elegance and finesse. Lovely fruit expression. Refined tannins. Long, persistent finish. Harmonious. Drink 2020-2040. James Lawther, decanter.com

La Fleur Petrus Fresh picked flowers, Valhrona chocolate and boysenberry liqueur perfume entice your palate to experience layers of refined, silk and velvet plums and black cherries. Luscious, ripe, rich, pure, sweet and long, the wine ends with a chocolate coated, fresh black raspberry liqueur finish winecellarinsider.com

The 2010 La Fleur Petrus has very pretty aromatics of blackberries, plums, cedar, spice, and violets, with a wide array of flavours on the palate. There is an impressive delicacy to the flavours, while the tannins and structure suggest a wine for very long aging. asianpalate.com
