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. The wine became particularly popular in the United States, with Kennedy becoming its first ambassador. On the death of Edmonde Loubat in 1961, Jean-Pierre Moueix became sole owner and called on oenologist Jean-Claude Berrouet to take charge of vinification. Over the following decades, Petrus rose to the top of the hierarchy of great Bordeaux wines. 

Today, Jean-Pierre Moueix's sons and grandsons, Jean-François and Jean, are at the helm of Domaine, accompanied by Olivier Berrouet who has replaced his father in the cellar and continues to give birth to the Petrus style.

Today, Petrus reigns over an 11.5-hectare vineyard, planted on a 40-metre-high... See more ...

Description Petrus 2015.

The 2015 vintage is considered an excellent year for the Bordeaux vineyards. The conditions were globally hot and dry, especially during the summer. The ripening of the different grape varieties was complete and optimal thanks to the months of August and September being sufficiently cool and dry, without excessive heat. The harvest was almost perfectly homogeneous.

Blend of the 2015 vintage: 100% Merlot.

The robe is a magnificent deep purple color, with subtle garnet tints.

The nose reveals greedy fruity notes of black cherry, blackberry and blueberry, harmoniously blended with a hint of cedar of Lebanon, truffle and violet.

The attack in the mouth is extremely refined, the wine fills the palate with flavors of small red fruits, licorice and Zan. It evolves in a long way on a dense and silky texture, supported by chiseled and finely built tannins. With great freshness, it stretches to a long and complex finish. A Pétrus that certainly does not leave one indifferent.

Food and wine pairing:

Pétrus 2015 must be enjoyed with delicate dishes to be fully appreciated, such as a tournedos of beef with truffle sauce, a roasted rack of lamb with herbs, a loin of veal on creamy polenta or a roasted capon with foie gras and Albufera sauce.

For a pairing with cheese, choose pressed and uncooked cheeses: cantal, old mimolette, morbier, saint-nectaire and tomme de Savoie.

For dessert, enjoy it with Pierre Hermé's Carrément chocolat, a black forest or a praline dome.

Ageing potential and tasting:

Pétrus 2015 a nectar that has great aging potential, being able to wait in the cellar until 2045 without problems to reach its peak.

However, it can be enjoyed now if it is properly prepared. To do so, take care to place the bottle the night before in the serving room at room temperature and to open it. Otherwise, open and decant the bottle at least 6 to 7 hours before tasting.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar, protected from light, lying down, at an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.
