La Fleur Petrus 2007
Tasting Notes La Fleur Petrus 2007
Served at a mini-vertical at the chateau, the 2007 La Fleur-Petrus has a lifted nose, the fruit more red than black, with cranberry, wild strawberry mingling with touches of warm gravel and dried herbs. It opens nicely in the glass. The palate is rounded and savoury, almost meaty on the entry. The acidity is nicely judged and it has a very harmonious, ferrous finish that caresses the palate. It perhaps would benefit with a little more length and tension, but this remains a commendable, enjoyable Pomerol for the vintage that will drink well over the next decade. Tasted June 2013.
One of the stars of the vintage, this deep plum/ruby-tinged 2007 offers a big, sweet kiss of black cherries, blackberries, licorice, and earth. Round, generous, and medium-bodied with an intensity of flavor and silkiness that are endearing, it should drink nicely for a decade or more.
