    ABV:
    13.5%
    95/100
    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    Continuing a run of strong vintages at Lafleur-Petrus, this has finesse and elegance alongside its muscular, powerful tannins. Think smoked blueberries, cloves and chocolate-dipped raspberries, concentrated and confident, opening to black truffles and campfire smoke. Pomerol signature in spades.

    The 2018 La Fleur-Petrus is a blend of 93% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it gallops out of the glass with energetic scents of crushed blackberries, black raspberries, and wild blueberries, followed by wafts of violets, slate, and underbrush with a hint of clove oil. The densely laden, full-bodied palate has a fantastic backbone of very fine-grained tannins and lively acidity supporting the tightly wound black fruits, finishing long and perfumed.

    The 2018 La Fleur-Pétrus has a wonderful bouquet that exceeds my expectations, featuring black-truffle-infused black fruit and those juniper berries I noticed out of barrel, all beautifully defined and seeming to blossom in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. There is a slightly granular texture on the entry, matched with a fine bead of acidity. Very harmonious. A pinch of salted licorice appears toward the finish, which might lag behind both Trotanoy and Hosanna in terms of complexity, but delivers impressive persistence.

    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.
