You will be led through a comparative tasting of wines from Château Bélair-Monange and Château La Fleur-Pétrus, two of the famous vineyards acquired by the Moueix family.

Château La Fleur Pétrus

Château La Fleur-Pétrus is one of the most distinguished vineyards in Pomerol, named in the 18th century for its position across the localities ‘Petrus’ and ‘La Fleur’. Its personality is closely linked to the famous gravel and clay terroirs of the Pomerol plateau. Château Bélair-Monange is situated at the highest point of St-Emilion’s illustrious limestone plateau and traces its history back to Roman times. It was confirmed as a Premier Grand Cru Classé in the 2022 St-Emilion Classification.

This masterclass offers an exclusive opportunity to sample and savour wines from these prestigious Right Bank properties side by side. Wines will include highly rated Bordeaux vintages, such as 2018, 2016 and 2010, as well as La Fleur-Pétrus 1998, an excellent year on the Right Bank now reaching 25 years of age.
