Chateau Petrus

chateau petrus pomerol 2013 750ml

$3,199.99

Petrus is considered to be the most interesting of the Pomerols. In Pomerol there is no classification as in Medoc or Saint-Émilion. But the small surface, 11,50 hectares (9 time smaller than Lafite) of Petrus makes it rare. Situated on the higher point of Pomerol. The new barrels are washed in order not to mark the wine to much. The grapes are harvested when fully matured for the purity of taste to the detriment of productivity. Petrus, tremendous soil, is first of all the rendezvous of men in love with wine; Michel Gilet, master of the vines, dreams of nature without chemistry; Francois Veyssiere, cellar master is also collector of fruit trees in danger of extinction; the winemaker, Jean-Claude Berrouet brings his enthusiasm of Basque to Petrus as well as to Lafleur-Petrus, La Magdeleine and Trotanoy

 

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

WE95, Wine Enthusiast

"This wine is ripe, juicy and already showing its concentration and depth. It showcases the fruit of the year, deliciously fresh while having a velvet tannic structure. The acidity will continue to keep the wine fresh, allowing the structure to develop slowly. It sings with great fruit and good potential. Drink from 2022."

 

JS94, James Suckling

"Very fine and structured with ultra-fine tannins. Medium bodied with beautiful density and texture. It has length and grip for the vintage. Better in 2020."

 

WS92, Wine Spectator

"This has excellent energy for the vintage, with a brambly, well-embedded spine that clearly drives the core of raspberry coulis, bitter plum and bright cherry preserves. Ample spice flickers through the finish, with a judicious hint of singed apple wood for nuance. This fleshes out steadily in the glass too, showing rare depth for the vintage. A great effort. Best from 2018 through 2028. 1,665 cases made."
