Château La Fleur-Pétrus

About Château La Fleur-Pétrus

Dating from the 19th century, it was historically seen as a good-quality property which didn’t quite live up to its considerable potential even when JP Mouiex acquired it in 1953. Today run by Edouard and his father Christian Moueix, the latter taking over the Château in 1978, it is surmised that the taking over of legendary namesake Château Pétrus entirely by the JF Moueix/Duclot branch of the family in 2011 has had an energising effect on the team at La Fleur-Pétrus, allowing them to pour their full efforts into its elevation to the highest echelons of Pomerol.

This property’s revolution began in earnest in 2012 with the addition of 5.3 hectares of gravel-clay soils from Château Guillot as well as 5.9 hectares formerly bottled by the Moueix family as “Providence”. A ruthless chopping and changing of what would be considered worthy of Château La Fleur-Pétrus ensued, with any and all land falling below the Moueix definition of the Pomerol plateau relegated to its (still very fine) sibling estate Château Lagrange (Pomerol). By the end of this seismic undertaking, a full 6 hectares of vines were no longer to be producing fruit for this label.

Viniculture

The entirety of Château La Fleur-Pétrus is now planted on the plateau, giving rise to exquisite grapes and sensational wines but also requiring the addition of extensive drainage channels as it is a true – extremely flat – plateau rising no more than 15cm across the full length.

Planted to 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, there are in total three plots with 16 distinct soil types from clay, sand and gravel representing incredibly varied terroir for one single Château. The wine itself, in the words of Jane Anson (Decanter), “captures the Pomerol sexiness that is such a pleasing signature of the appellation”. Ineffably complex with wonderfully layered, dense dark fruits, La Fleur-Pétrus is distinguishable for its sublime core of acidity bringing freshness to its richness, whilst grippy tannins mellow with age to form an utterly seductive and finessed wine.

Wine Spectator (97)

This is like a genie in the bottle. Fascinating yet subtle aromas of blackberry, minerals, fresh flowers and Spanish cedar. Full-bodied, with wonderful layers of ultrafine tannins. It coats your mouth and tantalizes your palate. A gorgeous thing all around.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2010. 3,200 cases made. -JS

Wine Advocate (92)

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 La Fleur Petrus has been an impressive Pomerol in recent showings. This one does nothing to alter that view. It has plenty of energy on the nose with great delineation: cranberry, pomegranate, singed leather and a touch of melted tar, firmly moving into secondary territory. The palate is medium-bodied with good structure, still quite tight but with a keen line of acidity and plenty of truffle-infused, black, dusky fruit on the finish. Great wine in an off-vintage. Tasted February 2017.

What a nose this has. I close my eyes when I smell this, and I see perfectly ripe Merlot grapes crushed in the vats. Blackberry, mineral, black licorice, coffee bean and chocolate lead to a full body, with round yet firm tannins and beautiful fruit. The luxurious finish offers a cashmere texture and gorgeous fruit. Rich and subtle. Doesn't appear to be the 2005, but very close. Score range: 97-100

What a complex nose of dark fruits, truffles and wet earth. Fascinating. Full, yet super long with ultra refined tannins and a long, long finish. It is tannic and muscular but polished and reserved. It's a wine with refinement and power.

La Fleur Petrus 2014 (6x75cl)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (96)

The 2014 Lafleur-Pétrus is a wine of translucence and total finesse. Deep and rich, yet also light on its feet, the 2014 Lafleur-Pétrus is one of the most distinctive wines of the vintage for the way in which it brings together intensity and elegance, all with an unmistakably understated personality. Bright aromatic top notes add to the wine’s open-knit bouquet and overall feeling of sensuality. A considerable amount of Cabernet Franc character comes through, even if Franc is only 7 % of the blend. All the elements are in the right place. In 2014, Lafleur-Pétrus is 93 % Merlot and 7 % Cabernet Franc.

Wow. The blackberry, dried-flower and orange-peel aromas are so impressive at first, but then they go to black truffle and wet earth. Full-bodied with a solid core of powerful yet fine-grained tannins. It goes on for minutes. A very muscular La Fleur-Pétrus. Drink after 2025.

The 2017 Lafleur-Petrus is elegant, polished and wonderfully refined from start to finish. Everything just falls into place effortlessly. Aromatic, sculpted fruit gives the 2017 its sense of regal beauty and total finesse. Beautifully lifted and precise, it is framed by gentle, silky tannins. Small red berries, mint, blood orange, spice and licorice develop in the glass, but it is the wine's cashmere-like softness that impresses most. In 2017 Lafleur-Petrus is a real standout.
