Tasting Note:

"One of the candidates for “wine of the vintage,” the 2006 is potentially the finest La Fleur Petrus made since the late forties. Harvested prior to the region’s first big rain in mid-September, from yields of 30-36 hectoliters per hectare, it possesses atypical power, thickness, and richness, as well as a superb perfume of flowers, melted licorice, scorched earth, and abundant black and red fruits. Great intensity, a full-bodied, multilayered opulence, beautiful purity, and tremendous length suggest this stunning 2006 will be at its apogee between 2012-2030+."

94/96+/100 - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 2007
