About this Item

Pomerol, 2012
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Located on the Pomerol plateau, Château La Fleur-Pétrus gets its name from its neighbouring châteaux, namely Château Petrus and Château Lafleur. Jean-Pierre Moueix purchased Château La Fleur-Pétrus in 1953 and the wines saw a clear improvement thereafter. The vineyards are made up of three parcels and most of the terroir is gravel with clay soils.

Critics Ratings

'Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 La Fleur Pétrus has a mint-fresh bouquet, vigorous and vivid, with delineated red cherry, raspberry and cassis fruit under which is a strata of wet limestone. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is a more understated Pomerol but there is real nuance here, black truffle and leather tinging the introspective black fruit. Yet behind that is harmony and finesse, notwithstanding impressive length and sustain. It may be slightly over-shadowed by the sensational Trotanoy, but Pomerol-lovers will lap up this fantastic La Fleur-Petrus from the JP Moueix team. Tasted January 2016.' – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (RobertParker.com), 96/100
