Ch. La Fleur Pétrus (0.375 L)
NM: Served at a mini-vertical at the Chateau, the 2005 La Fleur-P¿ªtrus has a glorious bouquet with intense red and black fruit, black truffle, dried petals, a touch of cured meat ¿C like popping into a Tuscan delicatessen with the floor sprinkled in sawdust. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and very good weight. It is almost understated on the entry, with a fine thread of acidity. There are notes of spicebox, white pepper and ever a faint hint of red pepper towards the finish that is long and graceful ¿C the kind of wine you really desire to linger in the mouth and choose not to outstay its welcome. Drink 2016-2030. Tasted June 2013.
