    Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
    Vibrant plum colour, richly textured from the first moments, bringing you squarely into Pomerol. Intense concentrated espresso and liqourice, the construction is expertly done, with lifted architecture, confident tannins and lift on the finish, turning on the pleasure factor as it opens in the glass. Harvest September 7 to 19.

    The 2023 La Fleur-Pétrus was picked September 7 to 19. Now, this is a level up from the Hosanna, with greater precision and focus—very pure and more terroir-driven. The palate is sleek and smooth on the entry, with svelte tannins, a perfect line of acidity and a very harmonious finish that fans out nicely. This is a refined La Fleur-Pétrus that should age well in bottle.

    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.
