98 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2012

Bright full ruby.  Drop-dead gorgeous nose combines superripe strawberry, raspberry jam, black cherry syrup, brown spices, Oriental herbs and exotic oak.  Extremely densely packed and energetic but already offering a satin-like texture and great early appeal owing to its sexy sweetness of superripe fruit.  There's an almost pinot-like silkiness of texture to its red fruit and exotic spice flavors.  The finish is very graceful yet lush, offering uncommon depth, complexity and charm.  As amazing as the 2009 and 2010 Petrus are, I think these two vintages from Lafleur are the best pair of clarets made by anyone in 2009 and 2010.  Simply put, this is yet another truly unforgettable wine.
