Tasting Note:

La Fleur Petrus is always one of the most sought after wines from Bordeaux. The original estate is a little over 9 hectares and is situated next to, you guessed it, Chateau Lafleur and Petrus. This terroir is unsurprisingly capable of producing exquisite wines. Now, the vines from Chateau Providence and a new parcel situated between Le Pin and Trotanoy (formally called Chateau Guillot) have swelled the estate to 18 hectares, making this the largest property on the plateau. There has been a real step up in quality here in the last few years. The 2014 was one of the most impressive wines of the right bank and the 2015 was a seriously handsome Pomerol. The 2016 completes a wonderful trilogy. Produced from 91% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Franc, this is fluid and serious with noble dark fruit flavours and a savoury core. This is a very assured, calm La Fleur Petrus. The fruit is composed and unflashy, but it is full of power and grace. Deep cassis with glistening high toned wild strawberry notes. The tannins are effortless and coat the mouth with complex minerals, salts and a touch of Valrhona chocolate. Very complete.
