Château la Fleur-Pétrus Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"A wine with well-integrated fruit and tannins with chocolate, orange peel and berries. Full body yet polished and reserved. 92-93" JS 04/12 "This is nicely packed for the vintage, with flavors of apple wood, cherry preserves and sandalwood laced with black tea and plum notes on the finish. A step up in range and depth...91-94" WS 04/12 "Made in a distinctive style, the 2011 La Fleur-Petrus is similar to Petrus in weight, richness and overall personality. A dense ruby/purple/plum color is accompanied by notes of creme caramel, sweet black cherries and raspberries. Medium-bodied, stylish and potentially complex as well as concentrated, it should drink nicely for 15 or more years...89-92" WA 04/12

This is nicely packed for the vintage with flavors of apple wood cherry preserves and sandalwood laced with black tea and plum notes on the finish. A step up in range and depth. Tasted non-blind.-J.M. Wine Spectator.

Planted to 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc in gravel soils. This 14.5-hectare estate, adjacent to Lafleur and Le Gay and directly opposite Petrus, was acquired by the Moueix family in 1953. Dark rim with a translucent core. This effort is all about... Neil Mechanic. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Fleur Petrus, La 1500ml

Planted to 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc in gravel soils. This 14.5-hectare estate adjacent to Lafleur and Le Gay and directly opposite Petrus was acquired by the Moueix family in 1953. Dark rim with a translucent core. This effort is all about elegance and balance with substantial but well managed and integrated tannins equally matched by fruit and acidity. A blueberry pie note makes this somewhat playful along with hints of cherry cola truffle and earthy meats adding an extra layer

Tasted at JP Moueix. I left my sample of La Fleur-Petrus to unfurl over five minutes and it was worth the wait. It unfolds with lovely floral aromas: rose petals sprinkled over red fruits and a scent of oyster shell emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine silky tannins a gentle but insistent grip in the mouth and a layered cassis and dark plum fruit profile that is elegant and yet powerful. This is another sensual 2011 from Mon. Moueix and his team. Tasted April 2012. Neal Mar

Planted to 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc in gravel soils. This 14.5-hectare estate adjacent to Lafleur and Le Gay and directly opposite Petrus was acquired by the Moueix family in 1953. Dark rim with a translucent core. This effort is all about elegance and balance with substantial but well managed and integrated tannins equally matched by fruit and acidity. A blueberry pie note makes this somewhat playful along with hints of cherry cola truffle and earthy meats adding an extra layer of complexity. The wood plays out on the finish so give this beauty some time and enjoy through 2030. Annual production approximately 3 500 cases. Neil Mechanic.
