Fleur Petrus 2019 released

Fleur Petrus 2019 was released earlier this month at €160 per bottle ex-negociant. The wine is being offered at £1,660 per 12×75, down 16.6% on the 2018’s opening price (£1,990).

Neal Martin (Vinous, 94-96) called the wine “superb” and praised its “gorgeous bouquet with expressive red and black fruit, intermixed with crushed stone, freshly shaved black truffle and a touch of blue fruit perhaps originating from the 3% Petit Verdot”.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (The Wine Advocate) awarded the same score of 94-96, noting that “the 2019 la Fleur-Petrus soars out of the glass with vibrant notes of freshly crushed black cherries, warm plums and kirsch with underlying suggestions of wild sage, damp soil, charcoal and unsmoked cigars plus just a hint of Sichuan pepper”.

Antonio Galloni gave today’s release a range of 93-95, describing it as “explosive and heady in the glass”.

Buyers of physical stock may also wish to consider the similarly scored 2012 (RP 95) and 2015 (NM 95), available at 13.3% and 8.4% discount respectively.
