Petrus is one of the most greatest wine. It is a legandary wine in Bordeaux and around the world. This estate is located in the Gironde in France. In AOC Pomerol, the vineyard is based on the highest hill of the designation, culminating at an altitude of 40 meters. The main grape variety is the Merlot (95%). The soil consists mainly of clay which is well suited to Merlot which constitutes 95% of the plantings. The 12 hectares are the subject of constant work and a constant obsession with détail.
The great vintages of Petrus are 1928, 1945, and Petrus 1982. Also, the 1985 and 1986 vintage are good. We suggest Petrus 1982, Petrus 1989. Finally we suggest the Petrus 2000 and the exceptionnal Petrus 2010.
The Petrus estate derives its name from a village called "Petrus". Its history is recent and yet this wine is already a legend. Throughout the nineteenth century the area belonged to the Arnaud family. In 1925, a woman from the Libourne region, Ms. Loubat, takes shares in the property. Twenty years later she is the sole owner. Understanding that the wines of the Medoc sell for more than wines of Pomerol, in particular her wines, she did everything she could to take advantage of such a promising terroir. In a few decades the myth was born. In 1961, Mrs Lacoste and Mr. Lignac, niece and nephew of Mrs. Loubat inherit the estate. It is thought that Pétrus is more accessible to tasting than some of its illustrious colleagues..
