Wine EnthusiastThis is a wine with great balance and elegance as well as richness. With layers of fine dusty tannins it has a warm character that is repeated in the perfumed fruit and juicy acidity. The wine is impressive, likely to age well. Drink from 2024.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 La Fleur Petrus is impressive out of barrel and it continues to evince quality now in bottle. It has a lovely, engaging bouquet with vivacious redcurrant and cranberry fruit, superb mineralité and energy, real focus and a sense of drive in situ. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a sense of symmetry and poise from start to finish. It has perhaps turned into a slightly more elegant and feminine wine than I anticipated, less bullish than the Hosanna. But there is real complexity on the finish with black pepper and clove lingering on the aftertaste. This is superb.

Wine SpectatorThis has a fleshy feel and a solid core of dark plum, fig and blackberry compote flavors. A strong charcoal spine adds texture on the finish, while black tea, menthol, bay and warm stone notes cruise through for added range. Has heft and will need some time. Best from 2020 through 2035. 2,917 cases made.
