Château La Fleur-Pétrus 2016 – Pomerol

Château La Fleur-Pétrus 2016 – Pomerol

The nose is elegant, well-built and offers a beautiful definition as well as a fine captivating side. It reveals notes of violet, blackberry and small notes of crushed cassis, iris / cornflower associated with slight touches of Cuben pepper and spices. The mouth is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, tense, beautifully silky and offers a beautiful definition, a small suavity, a slight acidulous frame, a beautiful racy minerality, a beautiful structure, harmony, a beautiful finesse of the grain, a slight power / straightness as well as subtlety. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed wild raspberry and small notes of cassis associated with small touches of small blue fruits, discreet hints of flowers, spices, cardamom, discreet toasted hints and an imperceptible hint of blond tobacco (in the background). Tannins are fine and elegant. Beautiful, aromatic and gourmande persistence. There are hints of tonka bean on the persistence. Power on the finish.
