Decanter   96/100

This is extremely good quality - intense, concentrated, inky but not a wine to rush. 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. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040


James Suckling   97-98/100

This is a tannic and structured red with loads of walnut, hazelnut, dark-berry and wet-earth character. Full-bodied yet tight and reserved. Muscular and beautifully formed.


Jancis Robinson   17/100

91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot on deep gravel and clay on iron-rich subsoil. Barrel sample. Inky crimson with purple rim. Dark, ripe black fruit and a slight lift of violets – perhaps the touch of Petit Verdot? Subtle but intense black fruit. Lots of fruit but also an overlay of slightly charry oak. Concentration and fine fruit, with sufficient freshness, all in embryo. Savoury, long, tangy finish with a touch of dark chocolate as an aftertaste. (JH) Drink 2025-2038


Parker   94-96

Lisa Perrotti-Brown. Composed of 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 la Fleur-Petrus has a medium garnet-purple color and opens softly and quietly with perfumed nuances of violets, potpourri, underbrush and garrigue with a core of warm plums, blueberry compote and raspberry pie plus touches of smoked meats and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied, the palate is charged with wonderfully energetic red and black fruits, framed by fine-grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing beautifully fragrant.
