Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix Château La Fleur Petrus 2011

Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix Château La Fleur Petrus

OPEN PRICE

Named for its position between Château Petrus and Château La Fleur, Château La Fleur-Pétrus is an historic estate dating to the 18th century and with a long reputation for producing great wines.  In 1950 Château La Fleur-Pétrus became Jean-Pierre Moueix' first vineyard purchase.  His son Christian has overseen the re-ascension of this estate to the top of Pomerol's hierarchy, first in his incredibly meticulous vineyard care, and then through the addition of an important parcel in the 1990s.

Tasting notes

This wine is elegant but possesses nice depth of fruit that is layered and complex. Gentle layers - plum, blackberries and Chinese red dates. Satisfying length. Well made 2011.
