Château La Fleur Pétrus, Pomerol, 2018

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, and the 2018 continues that trend - it may well rival the exquisite 2016. Produced from 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, this is a very handsome example of La Fleur Petrus. Suave and detailed with mineral infused fruit, crème de mûre, Asian spice and cedar notes, the palate is deep and concentrated yet fluid and pure. Waves of raspberry and goji berries coat the palate - this is generous and long, fragrant and engaging, then the tannins kick in. They weave over the palate painting a mural of flavours, each detailed and persistent. A superb La Fleur Petrus.
