Château La Fleur-Pétrus, 2009

RRP £195

From the Jean-Pierre Moueix stable (run by Christian – quoted above – and his son Edouard), this has a very classical nose of muscular, dark fruit with a eucalyptus, spearmint overtone, and a touch of herbaceousness. There is a floral prettiness peaking out too. On the palate it is focussed, lifted, and fresh, capturing the ripeness of the vintage whilst maintaining all its characteristic poise and freshness. The texture is caressing, with luscious, lovely satin fruit.
