Winemaker's Notes

Dense, dark colour with hints of violet. Intense nose with mocha, stone fruits, violets and spices. Generous and full-bodied in the mouth, with a powerful, harmonious texture. Smooth finish with lots of very soft tannins that remain dense without being aggressive.

Critical Acclaim

"A 2,700-case blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc cropped at a low 27 hectoliters per hectare (compare that with 39 hectoliters per hectare in 2009 and 31 in 2010), this superb claret was aged 18 months in 75% new French oak. Mulberry, spring flower, black cherry and raspberry characteristics as well as hints of spice and coffee emerge from this full-bodied, opulent, structured beauty. It should age effortlessly for 15-20 years."
94 Points

"Fleshy, but pure and elegant, with a gorgeous beam of raspberry ganache, plum sauce and cherry preserve laced with subtle graphite, spice and violet hints. The long finish is persistent, but with some admirable power in reserve. Best from 2013 through 2020."
93 Points

"Full, deep red-ruby. Exotic aromas of dark berries, cocoa, underbrush and ink. Thick, broad and full, but with lively acidity giving a light touch to the rich, dense dark fruit, balsamic vinegar and chocolate flavors. Finishes long and oaky, with an opulent, high-alcohol mouthfeel, big tannins and a note of fresh herbs.
Rating: 91(+?)"

Mr. and Mrs. Paul Chaperon owned this small Pomerol estate the mid-19th Century and their direct descendants, the Ducasse Family, have since kept the property in their able hands. In 1990, Mrs. Luis Ducasse, wishing to ensure the long term stability of the vineyard and wanting to maintain the subtle quality of the most elegant wine of the area, brought in as a partner, Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite).

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...
