(06-2013) Dark crimson and still quite deep-coloured! Claretty – more left than right bank on nose. Rich, dense and still very much alive. Long. Not the sweetness of the 1972 but very obviously noble and concentrated. Great balance and a dry finish. Very firm and even quite youthful, even if it lacks opulence. This could be quite difficult to identify blind...

Acker Merrall and Condit, reputable wineseller in New York and Hong Kong (2012) The 1973 Petrus had more green olive and veggie in its nose, not in an off-putting way. This was tasty, fleshy and actually ripe with some good tomato flavors. There was a nice mineral complexity which was still in a good spot and one of the sleeper vintages of the entire weekend.

(Ed 1998) The wine of the vintage, this is the best Petrus for immediate consumption from those wines produced in the seventies. Given the prolific yield in 1973 and diluted quality of many wines, the Petrus is sensationally concentrated, rich, supple, fat, and so, so flavorful. Friends tell me that it is still a delicious wine.

Château informations

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.The vineyard is based on the highest hill of the designation, culminating at an altitude of 40 meters. 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.  It is thought that Pétrus is more accessible to tasting than  some of its illustrious colleagues..
