About Petrus

Chateau Petrus, from a prime vineyard on well-drained clay soil atop the Pomerol plateau, has for decades stood as the world's greatest example of Merlot. Petrus's rise to the top, however, was rather meteoric, happening all at once in the second half of the 20th century.

90-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May 2014

(100% merlot):  Bright, dark ruby.  Captivating, extremely pure aromas of fresh blackcurrant, mocha, gunflint and violet.  Precise and multilayered, with small dark berry flavors given clarity and cut by lively, harmonious acidity.  The finish is complex and very long.  Lighter than usual but extremely pure and perfumed, this knockout wine has silkier, smoother tannins than any other 2013 Bordeaux.  When I visited Petrus in July 2013, the horrible growing season had Olivier Berrouet fretting like I had never seen before, but he can be proud of what he has achieved in this difficult vintage.  Making a great Petrus in outstanding years like 2009 or 2010 is expected, so in some respects this is Berrouet's best wine yet.
