2nd April 2010 News

James Suckling is out with more awesome reports on the 2009 Bordeaux. One of the biggest stunners is Château La Fleur-Pétrus, capping a run of extraordinary wines from Christian Moueix.

Château La Fleur-Pétrus 2009
“Licorice, blackberry, coffee bean and blueberry aromas; this gets more complex with every sniff. And what a palate. It’s so polished, soft and cuddly. Like curling up in a big cashmere blanket. Full-bodied, yet balanced and fresh. Lots of tannins. But all in harmony. Hidden giant here.” 95-98 Wine Spectator
