2007 Chateau La Fleur-Petrus 93
Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. A real surprise, this. What a great off-vintage Pomerol from perhaps one of the most underrated addresses. The nose demands a lot of coaxing from the glass: introverted and broody, with blackberry, charcoal, a hint of wild heather and peat. The palate is very well balanced, quite powerful with layers of ripe dark-berried fruits laced with cooked meat, spice, white pepper and a little sage. Firm grip on the finish that tingles enticingly long after the wine has departed. Serious quality for the vintage. Tasted January 2011.”
