Chateau Petrus 2019
Pétrus is one of the few Bordeaux not to have a "Château", since there is no real establishment on the property. The surface is 11.4 ha with a density of 5500 feet / ha. It extends northeast of Libourne, to Pomerol, and to the western limit of Saint-Émilion. The soil is composed of a high percentage of clay rich in iron, much more than in the surrounding properties. The blend is made with 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc, with vines around 35 years old. Pétrus produces an average of 55,000 bottles a year. The bunches of grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in cement tanks. The wine spends 21 months in completely new oak barrels before being bottled.

Originally owned by the Arnaud family, the property was partially purchased by Loubat, Libournenel 1925 and in 1945 became the only owner. In order to compete with the great wines of Médoc, Mme Loubat went to work to exploit the potential of his land. In 1961, Mme Lacoste and M. Lignac, grandchildren of Loubat, inherited the property. A few years later, M. Lignac ceded his share to the shopkeeper Jean-Pierre Moueix, who made much to do yo gain international prestige (especially by making it know to the Kennedy family). Since 2001, the property belongs to his son Jean-François Moueix and is Christian Moueix, the other son, who cares for the management. The wine is processed by the Ologe Berrouet enologist.
It is recognized as the number one of the entire production area.
Like all the great ones, it never disappoints, year after year. Maximize the best quality of Merlot while remaining natural in the expression of the territory. It has a very intense color, and a range of extremely large and complex aromas, ranging from red fruits to exotic spices. Net the smell of truffle. Always elegant, it has an extremely long aging potential.
