    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.

    A J P Moueix wine.Mid as opposed to deep crimson. Very rich, then peppery on the nose. Limpid sweetness with powerful liquorice and real appeal. Very visceral in its appeal. Great richness. This one lets itself go - not a stitch of corsetry in sight. Very seductive.ÿ

    Bright ruby. Peppery aromas of black fruits and licorice. Enters the mouth fat, then turns juicy and light, with good grip and floral lift to the dark berry flavors. Finishes with slightly tough tannins and lingering leafy and dried plum note, but there's plenty of fruit to support the tannins over time. New J. P. Moueix head winemaker Eric Murisasco has tried slightly higher fermentation temperatures in this vintage (30-31?C instead of 28?C) in an effort to gain volume and fleshiness.

    On the high-toned side, but ripe and persistent, with red currant and red cherry fruit pushed by licorice and sweet spice. There's a racy edge on the floral-tinged finish, where the fruit fleshes out a bit more, boding well for cellaring.
