Chateau La Fleur-Petrus. Brief.

Unclassified wine from Pomerol. Both the vineyard and the wine, belong to the same owner of Ch. Petrus, or simply Petrus, which is one of the most renowed wines of all times. Blended. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Chateau La Fleur-Petrus is a full-bodied wine with rounded tannins and a great flavor. Young bottles are "reasonably" priced compared to old well-cellared bottles. Wines from Pomerol are very savory and easy to drink, unlike many wines from nearby areas within Bordeaux.
