Notes

La Fleur Petrus is always one of the most sought-after wines from Bordeaux. The original estate is a little over 9 hectares and is situated next to, you guessed it, 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. This has been a firm J&B favourite in recent years, and 2022 is no exception. Produced from 96.5% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Petit Verdot, this is a handsome and rippling La Fleur Petrus full of power and concentration, yet also suave and unflustered. More subtle and controlled than Hosanna, this opens with notes of briar, currants and a touch of toasty oak. The palate feels tapered with impressive detail and a seamless quality to the fruit. High toned with notes of leafy cassis, violets and hints of cranberries, this has a wonderful shape - very correct and upright, with long, flavoursome tannins which evoke perfumed fruit, earthy minerals and salts. A wonderful La Fleur Petrus.

Notes
The 2022 La Fleur-Pétrus was picked 1 to 19 September this year. This seems very seductive on the nose with vibrant red berry fruit, cinnamon, light black truffly aromas. Maybe it doesn't quite deliver the complexity of the very best this estate has produced in recent years. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins, and perfectly judged acidity that lends this Pomerol unerring symmetry. However, it is quite linear toward the dark chocolate tinged finish. Fine tenderness here. Give it several years in bottle as there is a lot of potential.

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.
