Château La Fleur-Pétrus Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$299

A wine of superb concentration and dazzling intensity, the impressive 2000 Lafleur-Petrus is tasting even better out of bottle than it did from cask. A deep saturated purple-colored, full-bodied, powerful example that is clearly in a class with the 1998, it may be the finest Lafleur-Petrus made in the last 50 years. The 2000 exhibits plenty of cocoa, black cherry, plum, and currant fruit, a large framework, and impressive concentration as well as power. I always thought this was an improved "bigger" version of the 1975, and I have no reason to think otherwise based on its performance from bottle... Robert Parker

Tasted blind. I was somewhat underwhelmed and while time may be kind to it I do have my doubts that it will move the needle much.

Well located situated between Lafleur and Petrus hence the name. A little bit of history - Pomerol was originally planted by the Romans but fell into disrepair and neglect until the 17th and 18th Century. The total area of Pomerol is only 800 hectares. This wine is plummy and very earthy and so enjoyable. My notes said “This is why one loves Pomerol “.

This wine is shaping up very nicely. If you have some, wait another 10 years for optimum return.

Wow. This wine is frikkin stunning. Graphite, cherry, tobacco and leather with fantastic acidity and forest floor lingering for ages. Phenomenal.

A textbook color of ruby red. Terroir driven for sure, the nose is a plume of earth and pure red fruits. The palate has a gentle femininity to it, beautifully elegant and classy. The tannins are smooth as silk, the finish a persistent echo of the terroir.
