The 1967 Petrus was an appropriate warmup for the greatness that would follow. It had a beautifully chocolaty nose and an elegant, feminine style. There was garden all over the place, along with light plum. The palate was round, supple and elegant. This was a vintage that was ready to go, and I was ready to take it there.

In this vintage that produced so many lightweight wines, only the stablemate of Petrus, Trotanoy, can compete with the great Petrus. Fully mature, with good dark ruby color and minimal browning, this chunky, fleshy, warm, and generous wine has plenty of ripe Merlot fruit, a viscous, weighty texture, and fast-fading tannin. A lovely Petrus. I recently drank a bottle of this wine with my wife to celebrate my 50th birthday, and it remains a beautiful, savory, complex, intense wine with a seamless texture.

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..
