Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau La Fleur Petrus 2012


Lobenberg: Ein Moueix-Weingut. Oft in den Top 5 der Apellation, 2012 etwas dahinter. Schöne, dichte Süße. Rote Waldbeerennase. Walderdbeere und Waldhimbeere in hoher Intensität. Auch süße rote Kirsche. Schöner delikater Mund. Auch hier wieder viel süße Kirschfrucht neben Walderdbeere. Macht Freude. 95/100


Tim Atkin über: Chateau La Fleur Petrus

-- Tim Atkin: Even on a wet early morning in Libourne, this wine was singing. It benefited from the addition of several newly acquired old vine parcels close to Le Pin in 2012, bringing an extra level of concentration. The result is the best wine in the Moueix portfolio in 2012, a step up Trotanoy, showing soft, almost granular tannins, silky texture, fresh acidity and beautifully integrated oak. Leafy and complex, this is a fine, nuanced Pomerol that seduces rather than coerces, with near perfect balance and a finish that lingers on the palate.97/100


Parker über: Chateau La Fleur Petrus

-- Parker: Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 La Fleur Pétrus has a mint-fresh bouquet, vigorous and vivid, with delineated red cherry, raspberry and cassis fruit under which is a strata of wet limestone. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is a more understated Pomerol but there is real nuance here, black truffle and leather tinging the introspective black fruit. Yet behind that is harmony and finesse, notwithstanding impressive length and sustain. It may be slightly over-shadowed by the sensational Trotanoy, but Pomerol-lovers will lap up this fantastic La Fleur-Petrus from the JP Moueix team. 96/100


Gabriel über: Chateau La Fleur Petrus

-- Gabriel: Sattes Purpur-Granat, dicht in der Mitte, lila Schimmer aussen. Ich habe noch selten eine so tiefe Farbe bei einem Fassmuster von La Fleur-Petrus gesehen. Fein dropsiges Bouquet, Cassis, Maulbeeren und feine Ansätze von kandierten Früchten, parfümiert und immer mehr Schichten frei gebend, absolut faszinierendes Nasenbild. Im Gaumen ist alles perfekt, allerfeinste Tannine, homogener, rahmiger Fluss, Waldbeeren und wieder vollreifes Cassis. Klingt enorm lange und erhaben nach. Es ist das erste Mal, dass ich nicht widerstehen konnte, nicht doch einen mittelkleinen Schluck von diesem Fassmuster zu trinken. Ein ganz grosser La Fleur-Petrus für Mussestunden. 19/20


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau La Fleur Petrus

-- Jeb Dunnuck: A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2012 La Fleur Petrus is a stunning Pomerol that’s certainly up in the top tier of the vintage. Incredibly perfumed and floral, with notions of black cherries, raspberries, dried flowers, forest floor, saddle leather, and cedar, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful balance, ripe tannin, and an ethereal, elegant texture that carries ample flavor authority with no sensation of weight. Drink this incredibly fine, elegant, and nuanced beauty any time over the coming three decades. 96/100


Galloni über: Chateau La Fleur Petrus

-- Galloni: 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. 96/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateau La Fleur Petrus

-- Wine Enthusiast: This is a beautiful ripe wine with great tannins enveloped by the velvet texture and sumptuous fruit. The château, a neighbor of Château Pétrus, has produced a concentrated wine, with bountiful Merlot richness. It finishes with great fruitiness. 95/100


Suckling über: Chateau La Fleur Petrus

-- Suckling: 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. 94/100


Wine Spectator über: Chateau La Fleur Petrus

-- Wine Spectator: One of the successes in this vintage, with alluring bay and tobacco notes already emerging from the core of lush plum, raspberry and red licorice flavors. There's a nice thread of plum pit and charcoal for spine, with alluring earth tones through the finish. 94/100

Die 1956 mit 80 % Merlot und 20 % Cabernet Franc neu bestockten 13,5 Hektar Rebfläche bringen unter der Aufsicht von Frederic Lospied Weine hervor, die zwar etwas weniger kräftig sind als die der berühmten Nachbarn,...
