99 La Fleur-Petrus, Pomerol
It's what seamless means. For a Pomerol neophyte, this wine is enough to think that all great wine should come from a 10 hectare plot of land managed by Christian Moueix. I bet his water tastes better than yours. The 99 La Fleur-Petrus is an eye-opening wine for me because it provides so much unabashed joy. Sweet cherries, I guess, maybe some wet soil, raspberries, and espresso. I'm not really worried about getting the tasting note correct. More than a wine for writers like me, it is one for the winemakers themselves. It is the humming monolith of Bordeaux. It is the prototype.
