The highly regarded 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 Petrus, giving Lafleur-Petrus its name, and is planted to 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. An additional parcel purchased in 1995 formerly belonged to Chateau Le Gay and is adjacent to Petrus. The quality at the estate has continued to get better and better, and La Fleur Petrus offers one of the best classicly-wrought, elegant and rich wines of the Right Bank. In the 2010 vintage, LFP is now available in six packs.

James SucklingWhat a complex nose of dark fruits, truffles and wet earth. Fascinating. Full, yet super long with ultra refined tannins and a long, long finish. It is tannic and muscular but polished and reserved. It's a wine with refinement and power. 98-99

Wine SpectatorThis has a dense, almost loamy feel at the core, with smoldering bay and ganache notes leading to layers of fig preserves, blackberry coulis and steeped black currant fruit. The terrific, charcoal-coated grip drives the finish with authority. This seems poised to expand significantly in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2035.

Wine AdvocateThis wine has a character similar to its cross-street neighbor, Petrus, displaying sweet mulberry and intense black fruit characteristics, with a hint of vanillin and loads of black cherry jam. Full-bodied, extravagantly luscious, with a skyscraper-like mid-palate and phenomenal length of close to 50 seconds, the wine has plenty of tannin, but the voluptuous fruit, power and overall glycerin and intensity tend to conceal much of it. Elegant but compellingly rich and authoritative, the 2010 is a truly magnificent wine for this estate, which has one of the finest terroirs in all of Pomerol. Forget it for 5-7 years and drink it over the following 30-35.

Wine EnthusiastA majestic wine, grand in every sense. It has weight, the firmest of tannins and an immense sense of structure. This neighbor of Château Pétrus is firmly dense, showing both the fruits and the tannins in balance. Give this wine at least 10 years in the cellar.
