Chateau La Fleur Peyrabon, Cru Bourgeois Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, Magnum, 2012  

An extremely tasty 2012 Pauillac. From a 52-hectare property, 45 of which are located in Haut-Médoc and used to make Château Peyrabon, La Fleur Peyrabon is produced on the remaining 7 hectares in the Pauillac appellation. In 2005, the estate acquired an additional 5 ha for the production of Fleur Peyrabon. Its 2012 vintage is a marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. To the eye, its colour reveals itself in an intense deep ruby colour. Its expressive and very rich nose develops notes of biscuits, black fruits, especially blackcurrant, and spices. We clearly find the mark of Cabernet which brings a lot of freshness to the wine. On the palate, Château La Fleur Peyrabon 2012 presents softness and elegance and is accompanied by a very aromatic finish with notes of cherries.

The Cru Bourgeois Château La Fleur Peyrabon is made from 5 hectares of vines in the prestigious Pauillac appellation. It thus joins the small circle of 5 Crus Bourgeois that make up the AOC. Château La Fleur Peyrabon is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new barrels. Density, structure, depth, Château La Fleur Peyrabon presents all the qualities of a great Pauillac wine. On tasting, the wine offers an intense and concentrated aromatic bouquet while the mouth displays a superb structure with beautifully crafted tannins that allow it to blossom over time.

"Deep garnet, youthful highlights. Elegant nose marrying red and black fruits, toast and cocoa. Supple attack leading into a silky palate with closely-integrated, polished tannins. Focused, precise cassis and blackberry. A stellar wine for special occasions."

90/100 pointsGilbert & Gaillard

"Loads of perfume and complexity on the nose. Chocolate and black cherry, reasonably soft tannins for Pauillac. Creamy texture and lovely clarity. (RH)"

16.5/20 points, Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, November 2014
