WS 96-99: A brick house, featuring steeped currant and plum fruit, scored by tobacco, bay leaf and charcoal notes. A great tug of earth lurks underneath, but there's plenty of fruit to handle it. This is a big one. (JM)   (3/2019)

JS 97-98: 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.   (4/2019)

JD 95-97: The 2018 Château La Fleur-Pétrus checks in as a blend of 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. It's another inky colored beauty that boasts full-bodied richness and depth as well as thrilling notes of crème de cassis, kirsch, dried flowers, incense, and spice. With subtle background oak, flawless balance, and ultra-fine tannins, this brilliant effort will be drinkable with just short-term cellaring and keep for two decades or more.   (5/2019)

VM 94-97: The 2018 Lafleur-Pétrus is a stunning wine. Creamy, ample and generous, the 2018 has it all. Silky tannins and bright floral notes give the 2018 an air of sophistication to play off the rich, textured fruit. As good as the 2018 is on first impression, it is also magically persistent, with an eternal finish and fabulous balance. (AG)   (4/2019)

D 96: 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 Pétrus - my guess is that the gravel soils suffered just a touch more than usual in the heat of the summer. (JA)   (3/2019)

RP 94-96: 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. (LPB)   (4/2019)

WE 94-96: This standout wine is powerful, dense and ripe, with an unusual inclusion of Petit Verdot in the blend. It has great tannins that already have a smooth side to them, giving a fine, juicy character to finish. (RV)   (4/2019)
