A massive wine, traditional in style but amazing. Like a great '47. Inky in color, with an amber edge. Extremely ripe, with mineral, berry, cherry, meat and pepper. Big and burly, with full velvety tannins. Still needs time. (JS)
Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy’s 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. It is many years since I have encountered the La Fleur-Petrus 1982. Here it has a gorgeous bouquet of mulberry, sous-bois, salted liquorice and black truffle and later with time more tertiary aromas that usurp the fruit. The palate is actually superior to the nose with outstanding intensity and yet at the same time, so elegant and refined. There is a touch of piquancy towards the finish that does not quite have the length of the top tier Pomerol wines, but it is still a little beauty. Tasted November 2012. (NM)
After the quiet thunder of Trotanoy, Evangile and La Conseillante, La Fleur-Pétrus was clearer, lighter, silkier, floating on the breeze. I can’t say that it has a lot more kite time ahead of it and it’s structurally a much softer wine than its peers, but the forces are gathered, seamless and harmonious; there’s no sign of the acid component beginning to poke through the sheeny skin.
