The 1969 Petrus, had an exotic nose. Touches of soap and soup mixed with red dust in its dryish aromatics. It got drier in the nose, and I noted that I overswirled a bit while talking, which is not a good idea with older, lesser vintages, as they will not last longer in the glass, and swirling opens up a wine more. The palate, however, had nice lushness in a round way, blacker flavors and a nice finish with respectable acidity. This was still solid.

Slow to evolve but in 1974 the most complete and rounded of the first growths.

Petrus

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..
