Petrus

Petrus, a myth among myths, no more, no less. The most famous cru of Bordeaux, born of an exceptional terroir combined with a unique and jealously guarded savoir-faire. In the 19th century, Domaine was founded by the Arnaud family, naming it after the first of the Popes.

In 1925, Edmonde Loubat acquired shares in Domaine, spotting its great potential. For 20 years, she promoted the wines, and in 1945 joined forces with Jean-Pierre Moueix, originally from Corrèze and head of his own trading house in Libourne.

Together, they relentlessly developed the reputation of Petrus, sharing the firm conviction that it would become the equal of the great Châteaux of Rive gauche.

Description Petrus 1994.

A true monument to the Pomerol appellation, Petrus never ceases to deliver exceptional wines. Despite difficult weather conditions during the 1994 vintage, the resulting wine is of the highest quality. Sumptuously deep and intense in color, the wine reveals a lovely initial nose with notes of undergrowth and truffle. After aeration, herbaceous, mineral and blond tobacco notes emerge. On the palate, the attack is elegant and opulent. Racy, the mid-palate expresses tannins of great finesse. The bouquet of the nose is confirmed on the palate and continues through to the very persistent finish.
