La Fleur Petrus 2006
Tasting Notes La Fleur Petrus 2006
Out of the most recent vintages of La Fleur-Peturs, the 2006 has perhaps the most idiosyncratic nose
From barrel, I had much higher hopes for this wine as a potential candidate for the wine of the vintage. That said, it is still an outstanding effort, but it has nowhere near the prodigious depth and intensity that I thought. With sweet black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of truffle, kirsch, and even blacker black currants and licorice, the wine displays pure, nicely textured, medium-bodied flavors in a sensual style, but nowhere near the depth, length, and potential longevity I had expected. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.
