Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2008 La Fleur-Pétrus has a floral bouquet with pressed rose petal and iris scents embroidered into the blackberry and raspberry fruit, hints of truffle emerging with time. I love the delineation and freshness here. The palate is ripe and concentrated on the entry with layers of ripe redcurrant, cranberry jus and white pepper. There is real density to this La Fleur-Pétrus – one of the hidden gems of the vintage? (Tasted at BI Wine & Spirit’s annual 10-Year On tasting.)

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.
