Chateau La Fleur-Petrus 2011
Chateau La FLEUR-PETRUS is raptuous, bold, and beautiful, a wonderful wine to enjoy.
Chateau La Fleur-Petrus has been run by the Moueix family since the 1950's and produces a classic wine within the appellation that is always sought-after. Now 18.7 hectares of vineyards after more parcels were purchased on the plateau of Pomerol and Chateau Providence amalgamated allows for the vineyard to continue to grow in the Pomerol region.
The 2011 La Fleur-Petrus has a well-defined, what feels like Cabernet Franc-tinged bouquet with black pepper, sous-bois and light tobacco scents percolating through the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, simple with fleshy, quite saturated tannins. Cohesive towards the finish with black pepper, clove and truffle, this has fine complexity and reveals more personality and charm with aeration. 92 points, Neal Martin, Vinous.
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
