2010 Chateau Petrus
|Type of Wine||Red|
|Content (Alc)||0.75 ltr (13.5%)|
|Drink window||2027 - 2070|
A prodigious Petrus from the magical year 2010. The magic is clearly Petrus and the 2010 will always be an interesting vintage to compare with other legends such as the 2000, 2005, 2008 and 2009. Black fruits mixed with hints of earth, spice and caramel . The Petrus from 2010 is deeply garnet-coloured. On the nose, fragrant earthy concepts give way to a core of preserved plums, baked blueberries, licorice plus pieces of pencil shavings and violets. The palate is full-bodied and nicely balanced with a firm line of exquisitely ripe, fine-grained tannins and a fantastic freshness that enhances the generous fruit, with a very long and very stylish finish. Collectors lucky enough to own a few bottles of this vintage are advised to be patient.
This Petrus also comes directly from the Chateau. We always buy all our wines from the importers or chateaus so that authenticity can be checked and that we know for sure that these wines are always stored in good conditions .

Château Pétrus is owned by the Moueix family and is located in Pomerol (Bordeaux). Château Pétrus makes the most famous merlot wine in the world! The vineyard with its 11.5 hectares is small but fine, and is planted with 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc vines with an average age of 45 years. The soil consists of ferrous clay.
The Moueix family also owns Château La Fleur-Pétrus, Lagrange, Trotanoy, Hosanna (all Pomerol) and Château Magdeleine (Saint-Émilion). The grape pickers from all these domains jointly wait for the most favorable weather conditions, after which they all go to the Château Petrus vineyard and harvest within 1 to 2 days. The average annual production is only 2,500 boxes of 12 bottles - actually too little for the demand for these wines. The wines of Pétrus are among the most expensive, and also among the richest and most luxurious wines of Bordeaux. The fantastic taste experience is derived from the terroir, the excellent grape and the magnificent care by the team of Château Pétrus.
