Lot #120. La Fleur-Pétrus 2012

Description: Consists of 6 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 97 TA.
"Even on a wet early morning in Libourne, this wine was singing. It benefited from the addition of several newly acquired old vine parcels close to Le Pin in 2012, bringing an extra level of concentration. The result is the best wine in the Moueix portfolio in 2012, a step up from Trotanoy, showing soft, almost granular tannins, silky texture, fresh acidity and beautifully integrated oak. Leafy and complex, this is a fine, nuanced Pomerol that seduces rather than coerces, with near perfect balance and a finish that lingers on the palate." Tim Atkin MW, TimAtkin.com, Apr 2013
Provenance: The Cascade Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,000
