La Fleur Petrus 2010 750mL


The most fun in Bordeaux these days is getting a '10 and '09 side by side. This has the fruit to match its older counterpart, though it's a shade darker, with anise, plum, blackberry and black currant notes stitched together, while the charcoal and graphite structure is more evident but just as integrated. Remarkably dense, but without any sense of brooding or unnecessary muscle, this is about as finely tuned as a wine can be.--Non-blind La Fleur-P�trus vertical (December 2015). Best from 2020 through 2040. 3,700 cases
