Critical Acclaim

"The 2001 offers a huge spectrum of aromas, including notes of smoke, mocha, chocolate, coffee, and loads of blackberry, cherry, and currant fruit. The superb aromatics are followed by an elegant, medium-bodied, deliciously supple-textured, expansive, fleshy, beautifully pure, well-delineated Pomerol. It is a brilliant effort as well as one of the candidates for the wine of the appellation in 2001. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2014."
95 Points

"Rich and solid red with fantastically silky tannins and cool mineral and berry character. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is very good indeed. Best after 2008."
92 Points

"Medium ruby. Compelling aromas of candied currant and cherry, tobacco and roasted nuts. Suave, silky and sappy, with smoky berry and plum flavors framed and intensified by harmonious acidity. Dense, sweet, rich and seductive. Finishes ripely tannic, subtle and long. Delicious, archetypical Pomerol."

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. The area is all vines, with no real town...
