La Fleur-Pétrus took our breath away when tasting it this spring: here is an exceptional wine that has everything that you dream for in a truly great Pomerol.
The vineyards of Ch La Fleur-Pétrus lie in three sectors on Pomerol’s famous plateau. Partly, they are across a narrow road from Ch Pétrus, where they touch another rare Pomerol, Ch Lafleur. An additional plot of adjoining land, planted with old, mainly Merlot vines, was acquired in the mid-1990s. In the last 20 years, more superbly-placed vines have been 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 and complexity than ever before.
Impressively deep purple in colour, this has spectacularly vibrant aromas of great purity and beauty. Palate is luscious and fleshy, being powerfully built, with nervy tension, mesmerizing texture and wonderful length. With its finesse and undoubted potential, this is one of Pomerol’s archetypal, ultimate beauties (for drinking 2025-2040+).
