Chateau La Fleur-Petrus 2005
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.
Abundant sweet cherry and truffle, new saddle leather and spice box notes are present in this medium to full-bodied, supple-textured, silky Pomerol. It is less concentrated than some of the big boys such as Gazin, Le Gay, L’Evangile and Certan de May, but it is an elegant, finesse style of wine to drink over the next 10-15 years. 92 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
