The history of Petrus is not as well-known or documented as is the case of the first growths of the Médoc, to which it presents a serious rival. That is because the property only achieved notoriety in the second half of the twentieth century. Nevertheless, the oldest transaction of which there remains a trace dates back to the 2nd quarter of the 18th century, when Jacques Meyraud buys some land "located at Gazin, commonly known as Petrus". Several successive ownerships took place until 1945 when Madame Loubat became sole owner and entrusted M. Jean-Pierre Moueix with the distribution of her wines. It really marks the beginning of Petrus story as we know it today.   

There are many different reasons for the exceptional quality and character of Petrus. Petrus enjoys a very privileged position - its 11.42 ha are planted at the top of the highest hill of Pomerol, at an altitude of 40 meters, and soil - it is the only vineyard in Pomerol entirely composed of clay soil dated back more than 40 million years whereas surrounding it the plateau has thick gravel dated back no more than 1 million years. Blend: 100%% Merlot.

A dense ruby/purple-tinged color and restrained but intriguing aromas of kirsch, raspberry jam, wood spice, and mulberries are found in this full-bodied Petrus.

An undeniable success in 2011, it is rich, layered and pure with light to moderate tannin, but seems slightly less muscular and tannic compared to its stablemate, Trotanoy. It is typically open-knit and already showing very well. This is quite opulent.
