The vineyards of Ch. La Fleur-Pétrus lie in three sectors on Pomerol’s famous plateau. Partly, they are just across a narrow road from Ch. Pétrus itself, where they touch another rare Pomerol, Lafleur. An additional plot of adjoining land, planted with old, mainly Merlot vines, was acquired in the mid-1990s. During the 2000s and in 2011, more superbly-placed vines were bought, lying around Hosanna, and also between Trotanoy and Le Pin. The wine is now made at a state-of-the-art winery in Pomerol village, and La Fleur-Pétrus has greater structure and more concentration than ever before. With its finesse, potential complexity and sensational texture, it is increasingly recognised as one of Pomerol’s archetypal, ultimate beauties.
Impressively deep purple in colour, this has spectacularly complex, fully ripened, fresh aromas of great purity and beauty. Palate is outstandingly luscious, powerfully built yet elegant, with exceptional fruit density, fully rounded tannins, and truly magnificent length. We have been buying La Fleur-Pétrus pretty much every vintage since 1970. This is the most magnificent we have ever seen or tasted. It’s undoubtedly one of the greatest wines of the vintage (for drinking 2023-2040+).
