Winemaker Notes

The 2023 La Fleur-Pétrus is fabulous. Increasingly, I find it one the most complete Pomerols in the Moueix range. Perhaps, that’s because it comes from numerous parcels throughout the appellation and is therefore a wine that greatly benefits from blending. Bright acids and floral top notes add lift to a core of red-toned fruit. Hints of cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, mint and orange peel linger on the beautifully persistent finish. 

About Winery

It was the first acquisition in 1950 by Jean-Pierre Moueix, a young Libourne-based wine merchant of Corrézienne origin and owner of Pétrus. Since then, the estate's vintages have steadily risen in quality as well as in reputation among connoisseurs the world over.

The Château La Fleur Pétrus is based on an 18-hectare vineyard planted on deep gravel and clay soils on the Pomerol plateau. The grape varieties are 91% Merlot, 6% Cabernet franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The wines are aged for 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new. 

The Château La Fleur Pétrus offers wines with a unique personality, imbued with generosity and elegance like no other. They are complex, beautifully structured and deliciously aromatic.

James Suckling 97-98

"Very tight for this chateau, with blackberry, chocolate and black-cherry character, as well as a hint of smoky oak. Full and very poised with focus and beauty. 96.5% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 0.5% cabernet sauvignon."

Decanter 96

"Strongly scented, tobacco, tar, dark chocolate, blackcurrant, cedar and olive - savoury. Seamless elegance combined with energy here, lots of life and lift, bright acidity, bright crunchy fruit, great tannins, powdery and filling, providing the support. Still a little compact, but this is clean and concise, persistent and just so easy to see the finesse. Generous but controlled, stylish and chiselled, it has power with a cherry chocolate core, minerality and lots of cool menthol elements. Nice construction and presentation. Lots of drinkability and charm on offer in equal measure. A little powdery on the finish but it’s super long. Top buy!"
