La Fleur-Pétrus lies just across a narrow road from Ch Pétrus itself, and touches another rare, outstanding Pomerol, Ch Lafleur. In the mid 1990s Jean-Pierre Moueix was able to acquire a small additional plot of adjoining land, planted with old, mainly Merlot vines. In 2011, more superbly-placed vines were acquired, lying between Trotanoy and Le Pin. La Fleur-Pétrus now has greater structure, more stuffing and finer, potential complexity – with the creamiest of textures – than ever before, and is widely recognised as one of Pomerol’s quintessential, most brilliant wines.
In colour, this is strikingly brilliant, purple-ruby of medium depth, with discreet but complex fragrances, very fresh. The palate is richly structured, with dense, mouth-coating, alluring silkiness in mid-palate, and great finesse on the finish. Tannins are subtle and soft, the finish showing remarkable fleshiness, and vibrant, gentle length. This will make sensuously wonderful drinking from 2022-2040+.
