Tasting Note:

Edouard explained that an enormous amount of effort went into the 2012 vintage. Vineyard workers cut off double-buds, removed third clusters, leaf thinned during the summer and before the harvest, but they felt these methods were required to ensure an even and healthy crop. Lafleur Petrus is always one of the most sought after estates from Pomerol. Name association or just consistently good form has raised the estate's profile into something of a darling of the plateau. There is a savoury, charcuterie note, hints of tobacco, fine herbs and bright fruit. It is not the most graceful Lafleur Petrus ever, but there is ample concentration, lots of power and everything seems to be in check.
