A major sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 La Fleur Petrus (90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc) is a remarkably sexy, opulent wine that transcends the vintage character. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of sweet black cherries, licorice, truffles and a hint of graphite. Full-bodied with silky tannin as well as undeniable appeal, richness, purity and a 40+ second finish, this is a sure-fire big buy in 2008. Drink it over the next 20+ years.

93 pts Wine Enthusiast

A powerful, chocolate- and berry fruit-flavored wine, powered by ripe tannins and juicy acidity. It has a solid foundation of tannins, on which is built a rich edifice of fruit.

92 pts Wine Spectator

Fresh and racy, with the slightly angular feel of the vintage, though this has filled out nicely, allowing bitter plum, cherry paste and singed alder notes to meld nicely. Still young, though not in the league of the top vintages. Nonetheless, there's some lovely perfume, fruit and overall elegance here.—Non-blind La Fleur-Pétrus vertical (December 2015).
