Jancis Robinson June - 2013
Jancis Robinson
 Pure and rich. Long. Pure and sweet. Complex and racy. Really lively and complete. A wonderful bottle of the 1970.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
 Tasted at Benoit restaurant in New York. This is my second bottle in just over a month and it is perhaps even better. Here it offers a sensational bouquet with black rather than red fruit, hints of thyme, sage and broom, the delineation utterly profound. The palate is perfectly balanced with both intensity and elegance to spare. The fruit remains intact but melted and decayed, absorbed into the secondary flavours of black truffle, tobacco, hints of Christmas cake and a long, languorous liquorice-tinged finish. This is just a fabulous Pomerol and a fabulous Petrus. Tasted April 2013.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
 The best part of the experience is the silky, velvety texture that you find with its wealth of red and black plums, cocoa, truffle, and spice. The strong sensation of flowers on the front end is the perfect introduction to the wine. Fully mature, there is no reason or sense to keep holding it, plus, it is so good, you need to experience it. Drink from 2023-2034.

Falstaff February - 2019
Falstaff
 Medium crimson garnet, ocher reflections, wider edge brightening. Attractive nuances of black cherries, aromas of Perigord truffles, delicate licorice, dark berries, mineral touch, multi-faceted bouquet. Substantial and juicy on the palate, dark wild berry confit, present, supporting tannins, balanced style, extract-sweet aftertaste, a wine of great charm that has reached its full drinking maturity and impresses with great length.

Jeannie Cho Lee
A seductive vintage with layers of cassis, leather and dried figs. Tannins are supple and round with an intense core and great vigor for its age. A joy to drink now with the ability to age for many years.

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..
