Tasting Notes La Fleur Petrus 2005

95

A beautiful nose of subtle balance. Minerals, stones, raspberries, and plums. The nose has harmony. Full bodied and compacted, this brings a powerful palate and a great deal of finesse to the glass. Incredible purity of fruit, ripe berries, and notes of licorice. Overall this wine is bright and needs 8 to 12 years.

Served at a mini-vertical at the chateau, the 2005 La Fleur-Petrus has a glorious bouquet with intense red and black fruit, black truffle, dried petals, a touch of cured meat – like popping into a Tuscan delicatessen with the floor sprinkled in sawdust. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and very good weight. It is almost understated on the entry, with a fine thread of acidity. There are notes of spicebox, white pepper and ever a faint hint of red pepper towards the finish that is long and graceful – the kind of wine you really desire to linger in the mouth and choose not to outstay its welcome. Drink 2016-2030. Tasted June 2013.

As one might expect from the Moueix family, this is a classic, traditionally styled Bordeaux exhibiting a deep ruby color, medium body, and a sweet perfume of licorice and kirsch that are reminiscent of a Grenache-based wine from the southern Rhone. However, its elegance, freshness, and high but sweet tannin are unmistakably Bordeaux in style. This 2005 should round into shape in 5-8 years, and keep for a minimum of two decades.
