La Fleur Petrus 93-94js 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"The stunning 2012 La Fleur Petrus clearly merits its striking moniker. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, it offers a dense purple color along with a big, sweet kiss of mulberry jam intermixed with black cherries, raspberries and even blacker fruits as well as a subtle touch of oak. The wine is full, rich, concentrated and moderately tannic...94-96" WA 4/13 "Barrel sample. The neighbor of Pétrus, La Fleur-Pétrus is darkly tannic, rich, spicy and powerful. It's rich—touched by wood and black plum skins—and intently structured for long-term aging...94-96" WE 4/13 "A wine with generous fruit and velvety tannins yet reserved and polished. Full body, with a solid core of fruit and a long, delicious finish already. Excellent...93-94" JamesSuckling.com 04/13

The La Fleur-Petrus has a lovely bouquet that to be frank puts both Latour-a-Pomerol and the Hosanna in the shade dark berries salted liquorice dried herbs and a touch of smoke. It is complex and cerebral. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe very fine tannins. The acidity is nicely judged and there is a cohesiveness and focus that makes this the finest cru under Christian Moueix this year. And if they add that additional plot...who knows what it might achieve Tasted April 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
