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 »

  • Chateau Petrus Pomerol 1971

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • 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

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More
