Notes

Opulent and stylish, as are many of the 2005 Pomerols from Jean-Pierre Moueix, this wine is constructed with care over a powerful structure that hints at the power that lies beneath. The fruit is pure, the tannins silky with good mineral intensity, and the whole package is so beautifully wrapped in measured elegance that it will be fascinating to watch the power gradually abate and the fruit develop secondary characters, all arriving in 15 years’ time at a perfect point of sensory equilibrium.

Notes
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.

Château La Fleur Pétrus

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.
