Petrus is a Bordeaux wine estate located in the Pomerol appellation near its eastern border to Saint-Emilion. An estate of limited size, it produces a limited production red wine almost entirely from Merlot grapes, on occasion with small amounts of Cabernet Franc, and produces no second wine. The estate belongs to the family of the Libourne wine merchant JP Moueix.
Although the wines of Pomerol have never been classified, Petrus is widely regarded as the outstanding wine of the appellation by consensus, and leads a duo of Pomerol estates of extreme prices, along with Le Pin, that in the modern era are consistently among the world’s most expensive wines.
The 2007 Petrus has a sumptuous bouquet with ample mulberry, truffle and pain d'epices aromas that are beautifully defined. It just seems to gain more and more volume in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, plenty of leather-tinged red fruit, clove and black pepper, a Pomerol with quite a sturdy finish that should see it age with style. This Petrus just seems to be coming into its own now. This is excellent.
