Reviews for 2011 Fleur Petrus, La Bordeaux Blend

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
This is nicely packed for the vintage with flavors of apple wood cherry preserves and sandalwood laced with black tea and plum notes on the finish. A step up in range and depth. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.

A wine with well-integrated fruit and tannins with chocolate orange peel and berries. Full body yet polished and reserved.

The 2011 Château La Fleur-Petrus is surprisingly forward and as someone that bangs Bordeaux, I would not begrudge anyone for opening this now. It has plenty of fruit on the nose: raspberry coulis, truffle and just a touch of menthol that evolves after an hour the bottle has been opened. This is precocious in the context of the vintage. The palate is soft and fleshy on the entry, quite saline with sappy black fruit, fruit-forward for the first hour, but then seeming to run out of ideas after an hour and thinning out (whereas the 2012 fans out). As a consequence, it just feels a little grainy and hard, in contrast to the more comely bouquet. Tasted February 2016. - Neal Martin

This 14.5-hectare estate adjacent to Lafleur and Le Gay and directly opposite Petrus was acquired by the Moueix family in 1953. Dark rim with a translucent core. This effort is all about elegance and balance with substantial but well managed and integrated tannins equally matched by fruit and acidity. A blueberry pie note makes this somewhat playful along with hints of cherry cola truffle and earthy meats adding an extra layer of complexity. The wood plays out on the finish so give this beauty some time and enjoy through 2030. Annual production approximately 3500 cases.
