La Fleur Petrus, Hosanna, Belair Monange and more
25 June 2020

Jean-Pierre Moueix is almost singlehandedly responsible for putting Pomerol on the map. It’s hard to believe that this now revered commune was virtually unknown before he started buying up vineyards and promoting the wines in the 1950s. The family’s acquisitions are now the stuff of legend: Petrus, Trotanoy, La Fleur Petrus, Hosanna, Magdelaine, Belair… They have a nose for great terroir! Recent developments made by Christian and Edouard have further improved these brands. Their reputation for making classical expressions of these wonderful terroirs and true representations of the vintage doesn’t always win them the accolades they deserve. The 2019s are simply spectacular. These are wines with real gravitas and flair that hold one’s interest with their deeply complex mineral tannins and sheer dynamism. It is a spellbinding range, which reflects the brilliance of these sites and showcases this sympathetic style of wine-making at its very best.

“The 2019 La Fleur-Pétrus underwent double sorting, optical and manual, after harvest between 17 September and 3 October. It is matured in 50% new oak. It has a gorgeous bouquet with expressive red and black fruit, intermixed with crushed stone, freshly shaved black truffle and a touch of blue fruit perhaps originating from the 3% Petit Verdot. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, gently grippy tannins, undercurrents of tobacco and earth towards the finish. It actually ends more cerebrally than I anticipated, quite mercurial in the glass. This will require several years in bottle, but it will surely be worth the wait. Superb! 2026 – 2050. 94-96/100”. - Neal Martin,
