Chateau La Fleur-Petrus takes its name from its neighbours, being sandwiched between the great estates of Chateau Lafleur and Petrus. Today, the estate is part of the Moueix stable, whose portfolio also includes Trotanoy and Hosanna in Pomerol as well as others in Saint Emilion. The Moueix family made their first Chateau purchase with this estate in 1950 and then expanded the holdings to almost 19 hectares, replanted the vines and invested greatly in the estate, all of which has resulted in Chateau La Fleur-Petrus becoming one of the most sought after names in the region. Three generations of the Moueix family have overseen the work at Chateau La Fleur-Petrus, with Edouard Moueix playing a key role in the expansion of the estate in 2012 through the integration of an historic parcel on the Pomerol plateau.
La Fleur-Petrus lies on the north-eastern advantage of the high plateau of Pomerol, where the vineyards benefit from both gravelly soils and the famous blue clay. The vineyards are planted with a majority of Merlot, along with smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Production here is miniscule, averaging less than 4,000 cases a year – which only adds to the exclusivity and rarity of the estate’s wines.
