Château Petrus is one of the world’s most distinguished and prized wines. The winery is located in the eastern portion of Pomerol in the Bordeaux region of France. While Pomerol has never been granted “growth” classification status, Petrus is widely considered on par with other First Growth wines. 
It may be hard to fathom, but for the first couple of centuries of its existence, Petrus was a cheap, hard sell. The estate was under the management of the Arnaud family until 1925, when hotel owner Madame Edmond Loubat acquired sole ownership of the property. With consultation from negociant Jean-Pierre Moueix, they reinvented the entire winemaking process on the tiny 12 hectare vineyard to a precise science and raised the price of the wine to signify its value. Soon demand outweighed supply and one of the world’s first cult wines was born. Today it has a prominent place on the wine lists of the world’s top restaurants and fetches stratospheric Read more »

  • I am a life long wine enthusiast with a preference for Bordeaux, particularly if consumed at maturity. I do enjoy wines from other parts of the world but find I like the ones that have a claret style best. I dislike CA/domestic  fruit bombs that seem so prevalent and popular in the U S.My bias toward Bordeaux was probably set when a friend of mi... Read More

  • Petrus Pomerol Red Blend 1971


    Petrus Pomerol Grand Vin 1971: Drank this on the occasion of my wife's 40th birthday. Ruby red color with subtle mahogany edges; subtle violet notes on the nose, dusty stewed prunes, subtle green peppers; amazingly balanced, still lightly tannic on the finish. Amazing for a 40+ year old wine. Read More

    Wine review by Kovas 50 States Of Wine

  • As you can read HERE, I was quite a big fan of most 2012 barrel samples from Moueix on the Right Bank in Bordeaux. 2012 is generally not an en primeur purchase, but some wines seem worth the ticket. For example, Chateau Trotanoy, one of the wines of the vintage - correctly scored by the still Almighty One, Bob Parker - was almost gone before any... Read More

  • Château Plincette Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2005


    83% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc. Grown in the sandy soil portion of Pomerol instead of the iron/clay that produces the great bold, braggart Pomerol's we buy for 40 bucks minimum. Decanted for 1-hr. Tastes a bit more like a St Emillion. Good soft plummy wine. Nothing less...nothing more. Still, if you want to drink/serve a bottle that says "Pom... Read More
