Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
13.5 %

Notes

A rich, sensual and seductive nose of crushed strawberries and cherry, with warm black pepper hints leading to a delicious and sumptuous palate tinged with generous toasty oak and very smooth tannins. Gorgeously ripe and silky on the palate, bursting with dark fruit compôte, together with fresh and crisp red and black berry fruits; good structure and concentration, with crunchy tannins.

Notes
Red-ruby. Reticent aromas of dark berries, spices, licorice and menthol. Then almost shockingly supple, ripe and layered, with unexpected fullness and a sweet, gentle character. This is harmonious from the outset. Not at all a powerful style, but silky and suave. And nicely sweet on the back end, with the tannins arriving late.

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.
