Château la Fleur-Pétrus Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Sandwiched between two of the most famous names in Bordeaux, Ch. Lafleur and<br/>Ch. Pétrus (hence the name), this is one of the most elegant wines in Pomerol.<br/>Continuing the rich vein of form at this estate, the 2005 has a deep, dark,<br/>glowing colour which sets the tone for the bundle of rich, silky<br/>Merlot-dominated fruit on the palate. The wine's voluptuous character and ripe<br/>tannins ensure excellent ageing potential. Owner Christian Moueix draws a<br/>parallel with the epic 1989 and 1982, and we can see why. Drink<br/>2012-2020.<br/><br/>BBR Score 18/20.

Cool, minerally and fruity, with dark chocolate and olive character. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. Velvety and very pretty. This is beautiful and extravagant. Best after 2015. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Fleur Petrus, La 750ml
