  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 93-95

    The 2022 La Fleur-Pétrus was picked 1 to 19 September this year. This seems very seductive on the nose with vibrant red berry fruit, cinnamon, light black truffly aromas. Maybe it doesn't quite deliver the complexity of the very best this estate has produced in recent years. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannins, and perfectly judged acidity that lends this Pomerol unerring symmetry. However, it is quite linear toward the dark chocolate tinged finish. Fine tenderness here. Give it several years in bottle as there is a lot of potential. Drink 2030-2060

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    The high point of the Mouiex portfolio this year is the beautiful 2022 La Fleur-Pétrus, a wine that derives from a number of prime clay-gravel parcels on Pomerol's plateau. Wafting from the glass with aromas of cassis and cherries mingled with hints of orange zest, pencil shavings and toasty oak, it's medium to full-bodied, ripe and fleshy, with an ample core of fruit, ripe tannins and a long, perfumed finish. Seamless and complete, it will offer a broad drinking window.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    The 2022 La Fleur-Pétrus is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Sweet floral and spice notes lift a core of ripe red-toned fruit. The 2022 offers a gorgeous combination of finesse and opulence, but still in the mid-weight style that is such a signature here. Drink 2030-2052.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 96-98

    Named for its enviable position across the hamlets of La Fleur and Petrus, this is a proudly Merlot dominant wine at 97% of the blend, with the remainder Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Aromas of freshly burnt embers, full of white truffle, dark olive and blackberries. The immediate graceful charm slips from the memory as the power and depth quietly builds on the palate. Flavours of spice and sweet mocha combine beautifully with the overall weight and concentration. Polished and very long.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 97-98

    Very structured LFP with black berry, chocolate, walnut and spice character. Full yet fresh with tannic tension and energy in the finish. One for the cellar. 96.5% merlot, 3% cabernet franc and 0.5% petit verdot.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2023, Score: 17.5

    Elegant and fresh with an impressive depth of fruit. A note of mint furthers the complexity. Refined texture, the tannins silky and long. Plenty of drive and energy. Persistent. Measured and spot on. (James Lawther MW) Drink 2030 – 2045

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 95

    Grilled sage and rosemary spice on the aromatics, with rose petals emerging as the frame softens. This is structured and muscular, yet with light let in between the concentrated tannins and heavy black pepper spice. Sweet raspberry fruit also, alongside liqourice and pencil lead, and this clearly has a long life ahead of it. There is vintage imprint here, but also fragrance, grip, juice and velvet texture. Harvest September 1 to 19, 18.7ha.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 95-97

    While this château normally produces one of the most perfumed, elegant, ethereal wines in the appellation, the 2022 Château La Fleur-Petrus is a powerhouse offering loads of ripe red and black fruits, leafy tobacco, chocolate, and spring flower-like aromas and flavors. These carry over to the palate, where the wine shows a touch more of its classic elegance and is full-bodied, has a seamless, layered mouthfeel, building tannins, and a great finish.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 18.5+

    The nose on LFP is divine, and the excitement continues to the palate and the finish, making this an outstanding performance with much more to look forward to as the years pass. The tannins control the palate and keep the flanks rigid and impenetrable, and these sentries will remain in position for much longer than usual in this vintage. I particularly admire the complexity on the nose and this wine's beguiling dimensions. While it is concentrated and dark, this is not a heavy wine – it is, at best, a medium-weight being, but it packs a powerful punch. With authentic LFP charm beneath the scarab beetle exterior, this will be a record-breaking wine in terms of ageing, and I expect the volume of fruit to last well into its dotage.

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.
