Tasting Notes

JS100

This a Petrus with extraordinary balance and depth. It shows such elegance in the nose with complexity of black olives, dark fruits, and flowers. The palate is full and ultra-velvety yet there is a cashmere quality to the texture. It takes your breath away. There's almost a Burgundian quality in the mouthfeel meaning it takes you deep into the soil and captivates your attention. Greatest modern vintage of Petrus ever? Try after 2018.

WA100

The harvest at Petrus took place between September 27 and October 12, and the 2010 finished at 14.1% natural alcohol, which is slightly lower than the 2009's 14.5%. The 2010 reminds me somewhat of the pre-1975 vintages of Petrus, a monster-in-the-making, with loads of mulberry, coffee, licorice and black cherry notes with an overlay of enormous amounts of glycerin and depth. Stunningly rich, full-bodied and more tannic and classic than the 2009, this is an awesome Petrus, but probably needs to be forgotten for 8-10 years.

The Winery

Pétrus

The first historic documentation of the winery dates back to 1837, but didn’t find its current level of celebrity until the “great age of Pétrus” in 1945 with the end of World War II. Situated on the highest plateau in Pomerol, the soil is practically all black clay and ideal for their almost 30 planted acres of 95% Merlot. Hand harvest is only done in the afternoon once the morning dew has evaporated, and the wines are always aged in 100% new oak and unfiltered, producing wines with a gorgeous perfume, solid structure and aging abilities of up to 50 years in it best vintages. These are the wines that legends are made of. Pétrus finds its home on the unclassified Right Bank of Bordeaux in a modest two story farmhouse, yet produces wines that are the epitome of extravagant, lavish, and simply grand. Its magic is in the vines. Aesthetically, Pétrus is nowhere near the opulence of its Left Bank Château counterparts, but its wines tend to be even more expensive and rare than the First Growths.
