Château La Fleur-Pétrus 2016 (98 DE)
“Again a 2016 Pomerol stuffed full of complexity and power, with a full tannic hold and not a trace of dryness but this is chewy through the finish and holds on tight. Blackcurrant, pepper, slate and grilled rosemary. Held back right now, it needs another three or four years in bottle.”
Château La Fleur-Pétrus
From a wine of utter charm, La Fleur-Petrus has through the developments of the last 20 years become a wine of profound depth and complexity, all the while retaining its irresistible, seductive edge. You could even call it the archetype of Pomerol.
Pomerol, Bordeaux, France
Over the last 15 years La Fleur-Pétrus has become one of the most fascinating and, from a quality standpoint, extraordinary stories in Bordeaux. A wine borne of a great historic terroir, that through nurture and creativity has become something greater than perhaps could have been imagined, and a bright shining light of Pomerol.
