A medium ruby color is followed by a vivid nose of sweet kirsch, raspberries, flowers and dusty, loamy soil notes. This terrifically scented 2011 is medium-bodied, quintessentially elegant, and loaded with flavor. Obviously, the Moueixs have dedicated considerable time and money to upgrade this terroir as recent vintages have been among the most impressive wines I have ever tasted from La Fleur-Petrus.
Very restrained today, with singed balsa wood and incense notes that lend a perfumy edge. The core of dark plum and red currant fruit waits in reserve, while hints of alder and mesquite grace the finish. This should deliver some wonderful aromatics when the fruit fills out and meshes with the structure.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
