Estate Notes

Château Pétrus is Pomerol's finest wine and the phenomenal 1990 Bordeaux vintage has been rated 100 points by Robert Parker on seven tastings throughout its life to date, and there is still so much more to come in the bottle - incredibly another 40 years or so. 

Pétrus produces tiny quantities of wine that almost everyone has heard of, yet very few people are fortunate enough to taste. Everything at Pétrus is small-scale, apart from the greatness of the wine, and just over 2000 cases are made each year with phenomenal care and attention.

Reviews

"It boasts an inky/purple color along with a gorgeous bouquet of mocha, chocolate, blackberry and cassis fruit, an unctuous texture, a full-bodied, viscous mouthfeel and a skyscraper-like, multilayered finish. This spectacular wine is nearly overwhelming in its richness, thickness and intensity. Once all its baby fat falls away, the terroir characteristics and additional nuances will emerge. This blockbuster, fabulous Troplong Mondot will benefit from 10-15 years of cellaring and keep for three decades or more. It is not shy either, bouncing over the palate with 15.5% natural alcohol."
