Description/ Tasting Notes

Rich, powerful, concentrated wine with promising nose of sweeet black-cherry fruit, vanilin, caramel and herb-tinged mocha notes.

Winery Info/ Brand



Petrus is one of the most celebrated wines of Bordeaux and without contest the most famous wine of Pomerol of which it is the supreme archetype. Two persons are at the origin of the fame of this exceptional wine: Madame Loubat who transformed its - until then - anonymous reputation, and Jean-Pierre Moueix who made it into a great wine. Petrus has only one fault: the small size of its vineyard at 11.42 hectares or 28 acres. Added to the relatively advanced age of its vines and low yields (the amount of grapes on the vine), that makes for only 30 000 bottles that the entire world cries out for.

Region Info/ Origin



The Pomerol region is located at the northern border where viticulture was present in the area during the time of the Romans. Though it is uncertain as to the origins of the name "Pomerol", but it is speculated that the word was derived from the Latin word poma, which refers to a fruit bearing seeds and is the origin of the French word pomme, meaning apple. This theory is supported by the region's long history of polyculture with many other crops, particularly fruits and grains, being cultivated in the area long before viticulture became a primary focus.
