Château La Fleur-Pétrus 2008 – Pomerol

The nose is elegant and offers a very fine concentration and a very fine power (in the background). It reveals notes of blackberry, Zan, crushed cassis and small notes of crushed strawberry, crushed blueberry associated with touches of flowers, spices as well as very discreet hints of Cuben pepper, tobacco, spices and very discreet hints of undergrowth. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, slightly tight and offers minerality, precision, elegance, suavity, a slight richness, a beautiful texture, a slight straightness as well as a small tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of blueberry, small berries associated with slight touches of flowers (cornflower, iris), Sichuan pepper, tobacco as well as discreet hints of undergrowth. Tannins are elegant. Good length. There are hints of chocolate / tonka bean as well as a very discreet touch of vanilla on the persistence / finish of mouth.
