Origins

Pétrus stands as a paragon of Bordeaux excellence and the pinnacle of Pomerol. Its unmatched terroir and precise winemaking techniques elevate it to one of the world's most prestigious wines. Securing a bottle in excellent condition is a rare luxury that we are glad to provide here, given its global reputation and strong demand.

The essence of Pétrus lies in its profound expression of terroir. The vineyard, a mere 11.4 hectares (28 acres), is perched on the highest hill of Pomerol, on Bordeaux's right bank, at an altitude of 40 metres. The vines, with an average age of 40 years, are densely planted at 7,000 vines per hectare. This concentration, combined with the rigorous massal selection process—cloning the best vines to preserve their superior qualities ensures the continuation of Pétrus's exceptional heritage.

Since 2011, the vineyard has been exclusively planted with Merlot, having replaced the former Cabernet Franc vines. Since 2011, the vineyard has been exclusively planted with Merlot, having replaced the former Cabernet Franc vines. This decision highlights the vineyard's unique composition of iron-rich clay soil, coupled with blue clay veins. Such a distinctive soil profile enhances the grapes' ability to achieve optimal ripeness and complexity, thanks to the superior water drainage properties. The result is a wine of extraordinary depth, complexity, and elegance.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media 

Olivier Berrouet turned out a fabulous Petrus in 2019. A gorgeous, expansive wine, the 2019 opens beautifully over time. There is a feeling of radiance in the 2019 that is impossible to miss. Hints of rose petal, lavender, mint and cinnamon meld effortlessly into a core of red/purplish fruit. At 14.8%, the alcohol is high, but not intrusive. "We worked very hard to extract as gently as possible," Berrouet explained. Readers lucky enough to own the 2019 should plan on cellaring it for a decade or more.

The 2019 Pétrus is relatively flamboyant on the nose with gregarious black cherries, raspberry coulis scents mixed with autumn bonfire and fireside hearth. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, well balanced, quite fresh with a poised and delineated finish. I adore the pepperiness that lingers in the mouth, a multifaceted Pomerol with a long life ahead. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.

William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

The 2019 Pétrus is a powerful, heady wine, bursting from the glass with aromas of raspberries, cassis, violets, spices, licorice and kirsch. Full-bodied, fleshy and layered, with an ample core of fruit, lively acids and powdery tannins that assert themselves on the liqueured finish, it's a ripe, high-octane Petrus that reflects the influence of a dry, warm growing season on what is essentially a single cépage (Merlot) and a single soil type (clay).
