  • Goedhuis, April 2014, Score: 92-94

    Lots of sweet juicy young fermenting fruit aromas. A wine of finesse and harmony. This has unusual succulence for the vintage which provides for a wine of real grace and charm. Good length and lots of class.

  • Neal Martin, October 2016, Score: 91

    The 2013 La Fleur Petrus is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and offers a more enticing bouquet than the Latour-à-Pomerol at this early stage, more depth of fruit on the nose thanks to that pure Merlot: small red cherries, crushed strawberry and just a hint of iodine. The palate is sweet on the entry with crushed red berries, sea salt, bay leaf and a pinch of black pepper. This is well balanced and with more rondeur than the comparatively masculine Latour-à-Pomerol, suave on the finish even if it does not bestow the same complexity as other vintages from this Pomerol estate. Give it just another year in bottle and then it should give 12-15 years drinking pleasure, possibly more. 2018-2032

    Now La Fleur-Petrus has swallowed Château Guillot, I thought it pertinent to ask Edouard Moueix exactly how it is contributing to the blend. Edouard told me that around 75% of its vines are currently being blended into La Fleur Petrus, but that the vines surrounding the house suffered severe millerandage and was not used. The La Fleur-Petrus has an elegant bouquet with cranberry, crushed strawberry and mineral tones. It is a little more flamboyant than the Latour-à-Pomerol and yet it never "lets go" completely. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, a fine line of acidity and a lovely spiciness towards the slightly austere finish. With good structure, this classic Pomerol should give pleasure over the next 10 to 15 years.

  • Robert Parker, August 2014, Score: 89-91

    Only 2,000 cases will be produced from the tiny 2013 crop at La Fleur Petrus, an estate that the Moueix family is making every effort to elevate (in price and quality) next to such properties as Petrus, Lafleur, La Conseillante, l'Evangile and Vieux Chateau Certan. The 2013 La Fleur Petrus- attractive dark ruby/plum color is followed by sweet cassis, kirsch, raspberry, dusty, loamy soil and tobacco leaf aromas. Medium-bodied with adequate acidity and sweet tannin, this attractive, elegant, purely made Pomerol can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2014, Score: 17.5

    Another stunning nose of cherry and violet notes followed by a texturally superb experience loaded with a fanfare of red fruits and epic, dusty tannins. I am fast becoming a serious LFP fan because the wines are so impeccably balanced from day one.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2014, Score: 16.5

    Very pure fruit – more red than black – but the slightest hint of something a bit farmyardy too. Light body, tannins that give plenty of firmness to the finish. Doesn’t quite deliver the power on the palate that the fruit initially suggested. (RH)

  • Tim Atkin, May 2014, Score: 93

    This pure Merlot from the Moueix stable is a notch below Trotanoy in quality this year. But it’s still a smooth, classy young Pomerol, showing polished tannins, chiselled, minerally acidity, fragrant raspberry and red cherry fruit and underlying concentration. 2020-28

Château La Fleur-Pétrus

Owned since 1952 by J.P Moueix (who also own Ch.Trotanoy and Ch.Pétrus), this 13.5 hectare estate occupies the eastern part of the Pomerol plateau beween Lafleur and Petrus - hence the name. Completely replanted in 1956 after the devastating frosts with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the wine produced here is lighter than its stablemates, but is highly regarded for its suppleness. The wines are aged for 20 months in one third new oak barrels each vintage. Maturing quite quickly, La-Fleur Petrus can usually be enjoyed after just five or six years. Christian Moueix's drive towards increasing quality is illustrated by his more rigorous selection and by his purchase of old vines from Ch.Le Gay.Read less

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
