2006 Château La Fleur-Pétrus
International Wine CellarRed-ruby. Reticent aromas of dark berries, spices, licorice and menthol. Then almost shockingly supple, ripe and layered, with unexpected fullness and a sweet, gentle character. This is harmonious from the outset. Not at all a powerful style, but silky and suave. And nicely sweet on the back end, with the tannins arriving late.
