Exotic and explosive in the glass, the 2012 La Fleur-Pétrus is another standout in the Moueix portfolio. Graphite, smoke, incense and plum are some of the notes that open up in this exquisite bouquet. The 2012 possesses remarkable depth and intensity for the year. Gravel, smoke, sage, wild flowers, game and tobacco add the final shades of nuance on a powerful, virile finish endowed with remarkable salinity and freshness from the Cabernet Franc.

Christian Moueix and his winemaking team have done a remarkable job over the last decade to bring La Fleur-Petrus into the league of Pomerol’s titans. Now a worthy rival to Trotanoy, Petrus, La Fleur, Le Gay, La Violette and Vieux Chateau Certan, the dense ruby/purple 2012 La Fleur-Petrus has beautiful silky tannins, and stunning rich black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity, symmetry and overall character and complexity. This beauty should drink well for another 15-20 years. The final blend is classic – 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Very perfumed with stones, dark berries, mushrooms and hints of wet earth and nutmeg shell. Full body, chewy tannins and fantastic fruit and purity. Needs time to come together but a fabulous wine for the vintage.
