The 2015 La Fleur-Pétrus exudes richness and concentration. Iron, savory herbs, white pepper and mint open up first, followed by intense, pungent tannins that extend the mid-palate into the finish and give the wine its shape. Unctuous and rich, but with good aromatic intensity and plenty of structure, the 2015 is likely to require quite a few years to fully come together. The blend is 92% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 La Fleur Petrus is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, having absorbed Château Guillot back in 2012. It has a clean and precise bouquet with ebullient red cherry, blackcurrant and cold stone aromas that are very succinct. There is nothing showy here, but it is very refined and graceful. The palate is very well balanced with succulent ripe tannin, clean and precise, lightly spiced red fruit with outstanding focus and tension on the finish. This La Fleur Petrus has an effortless cool about it. I am sure it will be wondrous once in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2023-2050

The power and depth of fruit here is extraordinary with incredible phenolic texture and caressing mouthfeel. Full and enticing. It’s a wine that shows power with finesse. Such contrast and greatness. 92% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Gorgeously integrated already, with loads of blackberry and boysenberry fruit infused with black tea and dark wood spice accents, carried by charcoal and warm earth notes. The elements sail through a large-scale finish that has remarkable cut for a wine of this size. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

A Jean-Pierre Moueix wine. 18.7 ha (46 acres) of gravel and deep clay. 92% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Petit Verdot. Notably dark crimson. Very complex and layered (from all those parcels!). Lifted and sweet but not heavy and rich. Even a little light and polished. Fun, but not there yet. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2024-2038

Now a 18.7ha estate. Elegant, fragrant nose. Round and full on the palate with a fine, smooth texture and abundant, ripe tannins. Lovely length and freshness on the finish. Combines elegance and power. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2023-2035

What a wine! Scented, subtle and very fine, this is a poised, nuanced triumph. Deceptively easy to drink, even now, it has the concentration, acidity and fine-grained tannnins for a long life. Like the 2014, this is a wine that will taste beautifully at every stage of its development. Just try to keep your hands off it. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2025-2040
