Tasted with the family for a birthday.

Dark color. Very aromatic nose with a lot of smokiness.
Very smooth, full, this wine is not very strong but subtle and well balanced. A long finish. It got better with time. The end of the bottle is really excellent and reinforced the good rating.

The second flight began with the 1986 Petrus and a nose full of red cherry fruit with a shot of cough syrup. Its feminine nose also emitted garden, earth and chocolate aromas, and its palate was a touch sweet. The Hedonist found there still to be a lot of tannins left, and its sandpapery finish backed his opinion up. The palate headed in a candied and caramel direction, ‘a little raisiny’ per James, and ‘baked’ per The Hedonist.

Dark red, with an amber edge. Aromas of chocolate, stewed berries, Merlot and raisins. Full-bodied, velvety and rich. Lovely palate. Delicious now, but will hold on. An autumnal 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..
