Robert Parker 93
Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy’s 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. It is many years since I have encountered the La Fleur-Petrus 1982. Here it has a gorgeous bouquet of mulberry, sous-bois, salted liquorice and black truffle and later with time more tertiary aromas that usurp the fruit. The palate is actually superior to the nose with outstanding intensity and yet at the same time, so elegant and refined. There is a touch of piquancy towards the finish that does not quite have the length of the top tier Pomerol wines, but it is still a little beauty. Tasted November 2012.
