Only 2,000 cases will be produced from the tiny 2013 crop at La Fleur Petrus, an estate that the Moueix family is making every effort to elevate (in price and quality) next to such properties as Petrus, Lafleur, La Conseillante, l'Evangile and Vieux Chateau Certan. The 2013 La Fleur Petrus- attractive dark ruby/plum color is followed by sweet cassis, kirsch, raspberry, dusty, loamy soil and tobacco leaf aromas. Medium-bodied with adequate acidity and sweet tannin, this attractive, elegant, purely made Pomerol can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years. Wine Advocate.August, 2014

The 2013 La Fleur Petrus is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and offers a more enticing bouquet than the Latour-a-Pomerol at this early stage, more depth of fruit on the nose thanks to that pure Merlot: small red cherries, crushed strawberry and just a hint of iodine. The palate is sweet on the entry with crushed red berries, sea salt, bay leaf and a pinch of black pepper. This is well balanced and with more rondeur than the comparatively masculine Latour-a-Pomerol, suave on the finish even if it does not bestow the same complexity as other vintages from this Pomerol estate. Give it just another year in bottle and then it should give 12-15 years drinking pleasure, possibly more. Oct 2016, www.robertparker.com
