Château La Fleur-Pétrus is a wine estate in the Pomerol appellation of Bordeaux, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest in the region. The wine is Merlot-dominant, and is known for its finesse, elegance and ageworthiness.
The vineyard extends to around 19 hectares (46 acres) and is planted chiefly to Merlot, with Cabernet Franc making up about 10 percent of plantings. The core estate vineyard is situated across the road from Château Pétrus and adjacent to Château Lafleur. This site has more gravel than either of its neighbors, which likely has a role in the more refined style of the wine. La Fleur-Pétrus is typically vinified in cement and stainless steel, and then aged in a mixture of new and old French oak for 18 months.
The property was bought by Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1953, but had to be largely replanted after the frosts of 1956. The property was enlarged in 1994 after vines (and a country house built in 1782) were purchased from Château Le Gay and again in 2012 with the purchase of a plot near Le Pin.
Country of Origin:
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
2008 Vintage (Robert Parker's rating: 95 points):
A major sleeper of the vintage, the 2008 La Fleur Petrus is a remarkably sexy, opulent wine that transcends the vintage character. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of sweet black cherries, licorice, truffles and a hint of graphite. Full-bodied with silky tannin as well as undeniable appeal, richness, purity and a 40+ second finish, this is a sure-fire big buy in 2008. Drink it over the next 20+ years.
