    Château La Fleur Pétrus, Pomerol, 1995
    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    Medium garnet in color, the 2005 La Fleur-Petrus scoots out of the glass with expressive notes of cigar box, iron ore, and fallen leaves with a beautiful core of dried cherries, prunes, and Chinese five spice. The medium-bodied palate is delicately played, with refreshing red berry and ferrous accents complementing the plum preserves and earthy layers, finishing long and savory.

    The 2005 Lafleur-Pétrus is a bit awkward at first, but then opens nicely with a few hours of air, showing pretty red berry fruit and floral notes, all supported by veins of minerality that give the wine direction and proportion. This stylish Pomerol has plenty to offer in an understated style that is more finesse than power. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later.

    Château La Fleur Pétrus

    La Fleur Petrus is one of the most sought after wines from Bordeaux, usually selling out en primeur. Along with Trotanoy, this is the jewel in the crown of the Jean Pierre Moueix portfolio. The original estate is a little over 9 hectares and is situated next to 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. Far from diluting the quality, there has been a real step up since the addition of these new parcels, with greater precision and tension in the wines. That said, older vintages are still a treat to taste and have a wonderful capacity for cellaring.
