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

"The 1990 Petrus remains incredibly young, one of the least evolved wines of the vintage (along with Montrose and Beausejour-Duffau). This dense ruby/purple-colored effort is beginning to hint at the massive richness and full-bodied intensity lurking beneath its wall of tannin. The vintage’s sweetness, low acidity, and velvety tannins are present in abundance, and the wine is massive in the mouth as well as incredibly pure and well-delineated. I thought it would be drinkable by now, but it appears another 5-10 years will pass before it begins to reach its plateau of maturity. This wine is capable of lasting at least four more decades. An incredible achievement!" Robert Parker
