Very restrained today, with singed balsa wood and incense notes that lend a perfumy edge. The core of dark plum and red currant fruit waits in reserve, while hints of alder and mesquite grace the finish. This should deliver some wonderful aromatics when the fruit fills out and meshes with the structure.

93 pts James Suckling

A wine with well-integrated fruit and tannins with chocolate, orange peel and berries. Full body yet polished and reserved.

92 pts Wine Advocate

A medium ruby color is followed by a vivid nose of sweet kirsch, raspberries, flowers and dusty, loamy soil notes. This terrifically scented 2011 is medium-bodied, quintessentially elegant, and loaded with flavor. Obviously, the Moueixs have dedicated considerable time and money to upgrade this terroir as recent vintages have been among the most impressive wines I have ever tasted from La Fleur-Petrus. This relatively forward 2011 Pomerol should drink well for 10-15 years.

pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Fully saturated ruby-purple. Deep, rich aromas of violet, cassis, cedar and stone on the complex nose. Rich, sweet and dense, then brighter on the back half, with the violet quality returning on the long, clean, ripely tannic finish. Lovely juicy persistence here. Considering all the gravel in these soils, I would have expected a less successful wine, but the roots go deep here.
