Château La Fleur-Pétrus is a top quality estate with 10 hectares of vineyards in the appellation of Pomerol on Bordeaux's right bank. It is sandwiched between the estates of Château La Fleur and Château Pétrus. Although literally standing in the shadow of the mighty Pétrus, and lacking its neighbour's intense concentration, it is nonetheless a superb wine in its own right. The gravel-rich vineyard is planted with 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc with the grapes being harvested by hand and the resulting must being fermented in temperature-controlled concrete vats before the wine is aged in oak barriques, 50% of which are new each vintage.

The Wine Spectator wrote of this vintage:
A solid and well-made wine. Lovely blackberry, milk chocolate and cherry aromas. Medium-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long, fruity finish.


Robert Parker was similarly impressed:
This wine is sexy, opulently-textured, full-flavored, with low acidity as well as delicious, up-front appeal. Lavish cherry fruit intermixed with mocha, dried herbs, spice box, and toasty oak are present in this medium to full-bodied, fruit-driven wine.


This vintage is nearing the end of its drinking window but will no doubt appeal to the connoisseur of mature claret.
