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. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now.

96-99 points, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (2019)

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.

97-98 points, James Suckling (Apr 2019)

The 2018 Château La Fleur-Petrus 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.

95-97 points, Jeb Dunnuck (Apr 2019)

The 2018 Lafleur-Petrus 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.

94-97 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Apr 2019)
