James SucklingThe aromas to this are stunning with lavender, rose petals, walnut skin, strawberries and raspberries. Captivating. Full body, layers of polished tannins and perfectly ripe fruit. Dense and very long. Breathtaking classicism. Try in 2021 and onwards.

VinousThe 2015 La Fleur-Pétrus exudes richness and concentration. Iron, savory herbs, white pepper and mint open up first, followed by intense, pungent tannins that extend the mid-palate into the finish and give the wine its shape. Unctuous and rich, but with good aromatic intensity and plenty of structure, the 2015 is likely to require quite a few years to fully come together. The blend is 92% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot.

Jeb DunnuckOne of the undeniable superstars of the vintage is the 2015 La Fleur Petrus, which is 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. This awesome wine builds with time in the glass and shines just as much for its purity and elegance and richness and power. Boasting a deep purple/plum color to go with thrilling notes of tobacco leaf, currants, licorice, and subtle oak, it has a multi-dimensional, layered, elegant, and full-bodied style on the palate that just begs to be drunk. Nevertheless, it needs 5-6 years of cellaring and will keep for 2+ decades. It's a sensational wine!

Wine AdvocateA blend of 92% Merlot, 7.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot, the 2015 la Fleur-Petrus is a little reticent on the nose to begin, offering up beguiling notes of tilled soil, black olives, charcuterie and dried Provence herbs over a core of preserved plums, black cherries and black raspberries with touches of tar and new leather. Full-bodied, rich, plush and seductive in the mouth, it finishes with persistent, slowly revealing earthy/savory layers, which will keep you reaching for another glass.

Wine SpectatorWarm ganache, fig bread and blackberry compote notes give this a fleshy feel. Loam and warm espresso details glide underneath, further accentuating the dark profile. Shows ample drive and energy, with graphite and roasted alder elements and fresh acidity coursing through. Serious juice. Best from 2025 through 2040. 5,133 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastBig tannins and superripe fruit give this wine its powerful character. Acidity, black fruits and a rich structure add to the sense of power. The wine is rich, showing lush fruits as well as the tannin. It needs some serious aging. Drink from 2027.
