Vinexpo 2013: Celebration of 100 years anniversary of the birth of Jean-Pierre Moueix

Decanter Man of the Year, Christian Moueix, celebrated the 100 years anniversary of the birth of his father Jean-Pierre Moueix (1913-2003) and the renewal of Chateau La Fleur-Petrus on Wednesday 19th June 2013.

International guests, including Tom Matthews, editor of

the Wine Spectator and Jeannie Cho Lee MW from Hong Kong joined Christian

Moueix and family for a specially prepared lunch by Michel Guerard and a

vertical tasting of Chateau La Fleur Petrus from 2005 to 2010.

At lunch magnums

of an astonishing youthful Chateau La Fleur Petrus 1970 accompanied Michel

Guerard’s signature dish Oreiller Moelleux de Mousserons et de Morilles with

the magnums of 1998 accompanying the Civet de Hommard New Look Noix de Veau

Braisee Au Vin de Pomerol.

Christian Moueix told the guests, ‘my father always

said the first quality of a wine is abundance.” All were glad his words

were being followed so well.
