Château La Fleur Petrus Pomerol 2000

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The famous Bordeaux firm of Jean-Pierre Moueix purchased this estate in 1952, and today the management and winemaking is overseen by the talented Christian Moueix. The vineyard is located in between Chateaux Lafleur and Pétrus, giving Lafleur-Pétrus its name, and is planted to 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The quality at the estate has significantly improved over the last decade, and we believe that LFP offers Bordeaux lovers one of the best classicly-wrought, elegant yet rich wines of the Right Bank.

Wine AdvocateI am not convinced the 2000 La Fleur Petrus is going to eclipse the 1998, which performed even better in a recent tasting. Nevertheless, it is a terrific effort from this estate, sandwiched between the hallowed vineyards of Petrus and Lafleur. A deep plum/ruby color is followed by aromas of mocha, kirsch liqueur, loamy soil, spice box, and licorice. It is an opulent, medium to full-bodied, big, substantial yet elegant, precise Pomerol displaying beautiful purity. It is just beginning to drink well, and should continue to age for another 10+ years. One of the two bottles I tasted was corked.

International Wine CellarBright ruby-red. Superripe, highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, tobacco, minerals and spices. Sweet, lush and deep, with liqueur-like red fruits complicated by notes of tobacco leaf and fresh herbs. Very silky, voluminous Pomerol with real sweetness and inner-mouth perfume. A thoroughly seductive vintage for this chateau.

Wine SpectatorVery silky young red. Bright aromas of pressed flowers and blueberries. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Subtle red. Solid. Needs time. Best after 2010. 3,600 cases made.
