100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Read
The 2018 Petrus has retained its opaque purple-black color after bottling, foreshadowing the seemingly frozen-in-time glacial pace at which this wine is proceeding. It opens very reluctantly, requiring considerable air with vigorous swirling and doggedly demands a few hours before it offers glimpses at this slumbering giant of a wine. As it eventually unfurls, it slowly morphs into a powerful, fantastically pure nose of preserved plums, blackberry preserves and blueberry compote, followed by nuances of molten licorice, dark chocolate, black truffles, iron ore and, still later, floral notions of lilacs and rose oil come through. The full-bodied palate is taut, muscular and oh-so-tightly wound at this stage, revealing peeks at many, many layers of perfectly ripe black and blue fruits, exotic spices and earthy notions for which words simply fail.

Preserved plums, blackberry turnovers, and blueberry compote on the nose, complemented by nuances of licorice, dark chocolate, truffles, and floral hints of lilacs and rose petals. This is a cellar showpiece.
About the Producer
Château Pétrus, a legendary winery located in the prestigious Pomerol appellation of Bordeaux, stands as a symbol of excellence and rarity in the world of fine wines. Revered by connoisseurs and collectors, Château Pétrus holds a storied history that dates back to the 18th century. The estate's vineyards, covering a relatively small area, benefit from the unique clay soils that impart a distinct character to the grapes, particularly the Merlot variety. Renowned for their power, complexity, and extraordinary aging potential, the wines of Château Pétrus have become synonymous with opulence and refinement. Each vintage is meticulously crafted with meticulous attention to detail, and the vineyard's low yields contribute to the limited production and exceptional quality of their wines. A bottle of Château Pétrus represents a true oenophilic treasure, embodying the essence of the Pomerol region and capturing the artistry and expertise that has been refined over generations.
