94 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
‘It will be a decade before it will be decided whether Lafleur or Petrus made the most successful 1999 Pomerol. There are 2,500 cases of this top-notch effort as opposed to the normal 4,000+. As usual, Christian Moueix, always a pessimist, talks down the wine, but he has admirably succeeded in turning out another deep purple-colored, long-lived, super-concentrated Pomerol that will require 5-6 years of cellaring. Revealing copious quantities of plum, black cherry, and mulberry-like fruit, it is a rich, deep, full-bodied effort with sweet tannin as well as a firm structure. Four to five years … minimum … of cellaring will be required. A top-flight Petrus. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025. (April-2000)’
