image La Fleur-Pétrus: Pomerol pleasure for the rest of us

la-fleur-petrus-pomerol-wine

Occupying the enviable strip between Pétrus and La Fleur in the tiny appellation of Pomerol is La Fleur-Pétrus. And right there is Château La Fleur-Pétrus, which shares not only the same owner as Pétrus ― Jean Pierre Moueix ― but also some of the same tasting notes. While not nearly as intense or concentrated as its more famous neighbor, this RP 93-pointer characterizes the elegance that Pomerols are so well known for. It’s quite a steal and a chance to experience what makes a great Pomerol – for those of us not quite interested to mortgage the house or trade our firstborn for a Pétrus.
