Château Pétrus from the eastern part of Pomerol is one of the rarest, most expensive and iconic wines of Bordeaux. It’s also the modern prince of the region, whose stylish and notable rise to fame only began in the second half of the 20th century.

Prior to Pétrus’ meteoric ascension, the château’s winemaking history can be traced back to the 1750s, making it one of the oldest producers, yet it struggled to match the quality and price of the Classified wines of the time. In fact, it was only considered good enough to be a ‘lunch wine’!

Fast forward to the early 20th century when the management began turning things around and its reputation began to grow in Europe and the UK. It was when Robert and Jackie Kennedy claimed in the 1960s that they were fans that the world’s attention zoned in on Château Pétrus… including that of a certain Robert Parker, whose rise to fame could be said to be entwined with that of Château Pétrus. He consistently ranked their wines very highly, especially the 1982 vintage.

Once it became known as a stylish, highly sought-after wine often associated with status, the quality of Pétrus continued to rise with good management under the Moueix family, hectare acquisitions and the consultancy of oenologist Jean-Claude Berrouet. Today a bottle of Pétrus sells for over €2500 for one of its many great vintages.

Situated on top of the island mound referred to as the boutonnière or buttonhole, at the highest part of eastern Pomerol, Château Pétrus produces Merlot from its iron-rich clay. It has 20 hectares of vines, that, unusually, age over 45 years.

OUR VERDICT

The most beautiful, old-fashioned and memorable label in the biz perhaps and the wine that ‘invented’ Pomerol, at least in Anglophile terms. First among equals in an appellation that has no hierarchical classification, the market determines the Pomerol pecking order. And it’s either Pétrus or Le Pin, depending on your personal tastes.
