Ch Fleur Petrus
Named for its position between Chateau Petrus and Chateau La Fleur, Chateau La Fleur-Petrus is an historic estate dating to the 18th century and with a long reputation for producing great wines. In 1953 Chateau La Fleur-Petrus became Jean-Pierre Moueix' first vineyard purchase. His son Christian has overseen the re-ascension of this estate to the top of Pomerol's hierarchy, first in his incredibly meticulous vineyard care, and then through the addition of an important parcel in 1994.
Today, the 14,5 hectares are planted with 80% of Merlot with an average vine age of 30 years and 20% of Cabernet Franc with an average vine age of 50 years. Christian Moueix' obsessive work in the vineyard focuses on sap flow and the treatment of each vine individually.
