1945 Petrus Bordeaux - 98 Pts!

Petrus is easily Pomerol's most important wine, and is one of the most notable estates in Bordeaux. The Merlot-based wine comes from an 11.4-hectare (28-acre) vineyard in the eastern part of the Pomerol appellation, and is known for being rich and powerful, with characteristics of chocolate, spice and black fruit. Petrus is one of the world's most collectable and expensive wines.

The original 7-hectare (17-acre) vineyard is located on a mound where the soil is almost all clay, unlike nearby properties where there is more gravel or sand in the soil. The high clay content is particularly suitable for Merlot – a unique second layer of dense blue clay forces root systems to spread sideways. This feature is often credited with giving Petrus its soft but abundant tannins. The remaining vineyard was acquired from neighboring Château Gazin in 1969.

Rating 1945 Petrus Bordeaux - 98 Pts! While the 1947 Petrus is a big juicy succulent fruity wine the 1945 remains a backward tannic colossus needing another 5-10 years of cellaring. The color reveals more purple hues than the 1947 and the nose offers aromas of black fruits licorice truffles and smoked meat. Massively-constituted with formidably high tannin and extract levels this sleeping giant may evolve into another perfect example of Petrus. RP
