La Fleur Petrus 2003


75cl / 13.5%

Château La Fleur-Pétrus takes its name from its closest neighbours. The vineyard is situated less than a stones throw from Petrus. You can walk to Château Lafleur as it also abuts the vines in La Fleur Petrus. Not bad company to keep if you’re a Château located on the famous Pomerol plateau.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Red.
Nose: A surprising nose of stewed cherries, berries, with notes of liquorice.
Palate: A delicate floral and mineral note pokes through with some time in the glass. Full and super rich, with silky tannins and a fabulous freshness.
Grape Varieties: Merlot 90%, Cabernet Franc 10%

Blended, these three singular terroirs with nuanced and complementary characteristics produce a generous, expressive wine with apparent structure and a dominance of black fruit. An attentive tasting reveals remarkable refinement, complexity, and a touch of violet.

History of Moueix

Internationally renowned, Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix has become a hallmark for the top wines of Bordeaux. The company is the largest wine merchant on the Right Bank, distributing fine wines from Bordeaux and California worldwide. Family run since 1937, they are also the owner and producer of several prestigious crus, including Château La Fleur-Pétrus, Château Trotanoy, and Château Hosanna in Pomerol; Château Bélair-Monange Premier Grand Cru Classé in Saint-Émilion; and, in Napa Valley, California, Dominus Estate and Ulysses.

Jean-Pierre Moueix was born in 1913, moved to Saint-Émilion in 1929. At the time, the wines of Pomerol and Saint-Émilion were not yet widely recognized. Jean-Pierre Moueix, a visionary, foresaw great potential both in the Merlot grape and in its ability to age when grown in the best terroirs of his adopted region.

His sons and now his grandson, Edouard Moueix run the company together with their dedicated staff to produce, distribute, and promote an exceptional selection of over 200 wines.
