Critical Acclaim

"Blackberry and green tobacco aromas, with hints of coffee bean, follow through to a full body, with big, velvety tannins and a complex finish of dark chocolate and berry. Chewy and muscular, yet caressing and pretty. Best after 2015. 2,000 cases made."
94 Points

"A hugely perfumed wine with smooth tannins. It's impressively ripe, with vibrant black fruits.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points "
94 Points

"This property has returned to form following a listless period of irregularity that began after a brilliant succession of top wines in the eighties (1982, 1985, 1986, and 1988). Perhaps the finest wine since that outstanding quartet, the deep ruby/purple-tinged 2005 offers up scents of menthol, black cherries, raspberries, cassis, coffee, and a hint of new saddle leather. Full-bodied and powerful with a firm structure and high, but sweet, well-integrated tannin, this is not a Pomerol for near-term gratification. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035."
92 Points

"Medium red-ruby color. Quintessential Pomerol nose offers black raspberry, mocha, caramel and sexy oak. Very suave on entry, then lush, fleshy and sweet but with excellent spine to the highly complex flavors of black cherry, tar, iron, mocha, caramel and rose petal. Finishes with noble, horizontal tannins and superb sneaky persistence. Wonderfully sweet but not at all overripe. This will need a good seven or eight years of bottle aging and should last well."

Here lies Chateau Petrus, one of the most expensive and sought-after wines of the world - many vintages commanding prices higher than the first-growth chateaux of the Medoc.
