Château La Fleur-Pétrus

Pomerol

The original La Fleur-Pétrus parcel, on which stands its lovely farm house dating from 1782, is like all the parcels on the Pomerol plateau.  It is slightly north-facing and composed of large gravelly soils, with sub soils heavy in iron.  The second parcel (LFP 2) is located just on the other side of Château La Fleur and composed of gravelly clay soils.  Lastly, Christian' son Edouard Moueix oversaw the purchase of LFP 3, whose fruit was first included in the 2012 vintage.  This plot is located between Trotanoy and Le Pin, and is composed of a south-facing, remarkably fine and deep gravel.
